1/2 pound smoked bacon, finely chopped
1 bunch (about 10 small) green onions, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
In a large skillet, cook the chopped bacon over medium-high heat
until browned and crisp, stirring frequently, about 15 minutes.
To the pan, stir in the green onion, onion, chopped garlic, salt
and pepper and simmer, stirring frequently, until the vegetables
are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat.
Stir in the butter, then puree the mixture in a blender. (The base
can be made ahead of time to this point and covered and
refrigerated. Reheat before using.)
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup half and half
2 pounds spinach, cleaned and chopped
Heat the spinach base in a large skillet over medium heat until
warm. Gradually whisk in the flour until fully incorporated. Cook
over medium heat for 10 minutes to cook out the flour taste,
While the base is heating, scald the milk in a medium saucepan.
Remove from heat but keep warm on the stove.
When the flour is cooked, whisk in the hot milk and half and half,
mixing thoroughly. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat.
Reduce the heat to a simmer and continue to cook, stirring
frequently, until the mixture is thickened to a cream sauce
consistency, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the spinach, a little at a time, until all is added.
Continue to cook until the creamed spinach begins to bubble, about
Remove from heat and serve immediately. This makes about 4 1/2 cups
