 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   10       oz           Spinach, chopped
                         -(frozen or fresh)
    3       sl           Bacon
    1       sm           Onion
    1       t            Salt
      1/2   t            Pepper
    3       T            Flour
    1 1/4   c            Milk (we substitute
                         -a like quantity of
                         -50/50 Kosher Parve
                         -creamer and water)
 
   Rinse and chop the spinach.  Place the chopped spinach in a heavy skillet,
   cover, and steam until wilted, stirring occasionally.  There is no need to
   add water other than what clings to the leaves from washing. (If you are
   using frozen spinach, place over low or medium heat to thaw and allow
   excess water to evaporate) Transfer to small bowl and squeeze completely
   dry.
   
   Grind bacon and onion very fine and place in saucepan.  Saute bacon and
   onion until bacon is cooked. Stir in flour to make smooth paste. Gradually
   add milk. Bring to boil and simmer 10 minutes over low heat until
   thickened.
   
   Add salt and pepper.  Grind spinach fine and add to cream sauce.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  Creamed spinach with bacon -- This is a creamed spinach recipe that we
   found in the _Los Angeles Times_.  It produces a creamed spinach that even
   my wife likes.
   
   *  You may find that you want to add extra milk and give the finished soup
   a final heating in the microwave. We did, and it didn't hurt it one bit.
