Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.
