Increase heat to medium-high, add spinach to the pan with the bacon drippings and toss to coat. Add salt and pepper. Cook until tender; about 1-3 minutes.



Tilt pan to drain moisture. Mix in champagne vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Top with bacon shards and a bit of lemon zest.

Notes

From the Sauce du Jour Kitchen

For the Bacon Cooking Class - 109

We served this sauteed spinach as a side dish to the Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Saltimbocca. It's got a nice tangy bite from the vinegar and a salty finish from the bacon. It pares nicely with any light chicken or pork entree.
