  • 6 slices bacon
  • 6 ounces fresh spinach
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 (8 ounce) block of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Step 1

In a large skillet cook the bacon until crisp. Set aside to cool and drain on paper towels. Chop when cool.

Drain all but 1 tablespoon bacon grease from the skillet. Add the spinach and cook over medium heat until wilted and cooked through. Sprinkle the spinach with salt and set aside on a cutting board to cool. Chop finely when cooled.

Add the onion to the skillet and cook until it's translucent and a tiny bit golden at the edges. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat.

Place the cream cheese in a large bowl. Add cheese, onions, garlic, half of the chopped bacon, chopped spinach, and cayenne pepper and stir well.

Roll the cream cheese mixture into a large ball and then roll in the remaining chopped bacon. Wrap tightly and refrigerate until ready to serve.
