Bacon-Spinach Mashed Potatoes

IMG_1196

While this meal included corn and oven roasted, boneless chicken breasts with Penzey’s Northwoods Seasoning, it was based around the fact that I had a recipe for bacon-spinach mashed potatoes that I wanted to try.  Turned out pretty well.

2 lb potatoes (brown), peeled and cut into chunks
5 slices bacon
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pkg (9 oz) baby spinach leaves
1 tub (8 oz) chive and onion cream cheese spread

Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender, about 15-20 minutes
Cook bacon in skillet until crisp.  Remove bacon from skillet, reserving 1 TBSP of drippings in skillet.  Add garlic to drippings in skillet; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently.  Add spinach; cook  and stir 1 to 2 minutes or just until spinach is wilted.  Remove from heat.  Crumble bacon; stir into spinach mixture.
Drain potatoes; return to pan.  Add cream cheese spread; mash potato mixture.  Stir in spinach mixture.
