I created an absolutely delightful spinach dish tonight. I served it alongside some grilled ribeye steaks, but it would be great with any meat or broiled seafood. It’s incredibly simple to put together and only needs 20-30 minutes bake time! Both I and my husband liked the flavors of this very creamy dish a lot and I’ll definitely be making it again. It is suitable for all phases of Atkins but it is not appropriate for Paleo. Primal folks that eat occasional dairy can certainly have this once in awhile.

10 oz. frozen, chopped spinach, thawed and drained
½ c. sour cream
3 oz. quality smoked Gouda cheese, shredded or grated
3 slices bacon, chopped and browned (save grease to oil your baking dish)
3 oz. onion, chopped (I used a purple onion)
2 T. my Sofrito sauce
1 T. bacon grease
DIRECTIONS: Preheat the oven to 350º. Place the defrosted, drained spinach in a medium mixing bowl. Add the sour cream and stir. Brown the bacon and using a slotted spoon dip it up into the spinach mixture. Add the Gouda cheese, Sofrito sauce, salt and stir well. Grease a small baking dish with the grease created from frying the bacon (I had 1 T. total). Pour the spinach mixture into the greased dish. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or until hot throughout and the the cheese is fully melted. Serve at once.
