Skinny Spinach, Bacon & Corn Saute´

Happy St. Patty's Day! I've got a yummy recipe for you. Last night I made this spinach, corn and bacon dish along with some grilled chicken for a really flavorful and healthy dinner. The bacon and corn add a lot of flavor! The thing with cooking and what you'll see in this blog (once I get more recipes posted) is that everything I make on a week day or night has to take less than 30 minutes. I don't make anything fancy schmancy but I like it to taste fancy schmancy.

  • While the above is cooking, place the bacon on a pan to bake in either a toaster oven or oven. Bake on 350 degrees for about 5-10 minutes (this really depends on your preference of how crispy you want your bacon!)
  • Add in spinach, corn and seasonings to pepper mixture and stir frequently while spinach wilts
  • Once bacon is done, pat off oil, chop in small pieces and add to spinach
  • Turn heat down to low and cook for 1-2 more minutes before serving
