Quick Hit: Goat Cheese Creamed Spinach

Follow Me on Pinterest

I love this creamy and tangy twist on a steakhouse classic.  In this recipe, I use fresh spinach and add some bacon for a hint of smokiness.  The classic creamy texture is given a kick of tang with the addition of crumbled goat cheese.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day – serve this with your Valentine’s Day meal for your sweetie and look like a stud in the kitchen – even though the recipe is a cinch!
