Yeah, this stuff is good, scary good!



4 Tbsp (56g) unsalted butter
1 Tsp Italian seasoning
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1/4 Medium onion (30g) finely chopped
10 oz (283g) Freshly chopped spinach
4 oz (112g) Cream cheese
1/2 cup (118mL) heavy cream
1/2 Tsp salt
1/4 Tsp pepper
1/3 Cup Crumbled bacon - about 5 strips


  1. Heat butter in a pan over medium heat.
  2. Add minced garlic, Italian seasoning and onion, saute until fragrant about 2 minutes.
  3. Add spinach.
  4. Saute for 2 to 4 minutes, until wilted.
  5. If the pan is too small to add all of the spinach, add as much as you can fit, cover it for a minute or two, which will let the spinach wilt, then add the rest.
  6. Add heavy cream, cream cheese, sea salt, black pepper.
  7. Stir until the cream cheese melts, then cook a few minutes until thickened.
  8. Sprinkle crumbled bacon on top before serving.


If using frozen spinach make sure to strain away any excess water before cooking it in the pan.
