Ingredients Nutrition


  1. The key to this recipe is that it has to be prepared right before serving.
  2. Prepare the bacon (I like to use the already cooked kind) and crumble it.
  3. Pour the olive oil into a frying pan and heat on medium heat.
  4. Add the spinach leaves.
  5. Once the spinach leaves have mostly wilted, add the bacon and the pine nuts.
  6. Just before serving, add the feta cheese crumbles.
  7. The ingredient amounts I have stated above are ballpark figures.
  8. I usually use a bag of baby spinach leaves for this recipe.
  9. You can use sunflower seeds instead of pine nuts and blue or gorgonzola cheeses instead of feta.

Very quick and easy... and tastes pretty goodl. I skimped on the bacon and the cheese to make it light and it was still a nice side dish!

I loved this dish.. it's a fantastic and easy way to dress up a spinach side. I omitted the olive oil, and instead cooked my bacon in a pan, took it out and just added the spinach to the bacon grease. I don't like nuts so I made it without the nuts and it was still great. A delicious and simple side dish!
