This is it. The real McCoy. If you are looking for the traditional recipe, here it is. This is delicious. I don't bother with measuring out the drippings from the bacon. I use it all. It also works well if the spinach is at room temp when you pour on the hot dressing. Some recipes indicate that you should heat the dressing in a large pan, then with the heat on stir in the spinach. Don't do it. The spinach will turn into something that looks like it came out of a can. Follow the recipe. It works.

Funny how our taste buds change as we 'grow up.' When I was young, I remember my mom making this, and I couldn't stand it! I came across the recipe and thought it actually sounded like it might be good, so we made it tonight and the whole family really enjoyed it! Thank you for the recipe!

My husband thinks this is the best thing he's ever ate!!! I've made it twice and we love...love...love it!!! I put the little skillet from heating the dressing over the top of the bowl while I put everything on the table and it wilts great. The only thing I do different is I add the onion to the boiling dressing to make the onion sweeter. Thanks for a great recipe!

I always loved this when I used to eat it alot back in the '70's. Now my family likes it too! I make it with Splenda to save on calories and keep extra dressing so I can take it to work for lunch. Thanx for posting, it's a keeper.

I made this for my Valentine's Day Dinner, and everyone loved it! Instead of green onions, I sauteed some shallots with the bacon. My girlfriend loved it! Thanks for posting this.

great taste. next time, i will mix the dressing and spinach together first and then add the eggs and bacon on top. by the time i got done mixing, it looked messy. this is great for bacon lovers!
