Recipe Summary

  • 2 slices bacon (about 2 ounces total), cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
  • 3 bunches flat-leaf spinach (about 2 pounds total), thick stems removed, well washed and dried
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons white-wine vinegar

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy, 5 to 8 minutes. With a slotted spoon, remove bacon, leaving fat in skillet drain on a paper towel. Set aside.

Increase heat to high fill skillet with as much spinach as will fit. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing spinach and adding more as it wilts (it may take up to 2 minutes to fit it all). Continue to cook until tender, 1 to 3 minutes.

Tilt skillet to drain water from spinach (using slotted spoon or a spatula to hold spinach back). Mix in vinegar season with salt and pepper. Serve sprinkled with crispy bacon.
