Let’s start by slicing up four strips of bacon and frying them up in a hot skillet.
Go ahead and remove them once they crisp up…
But make sure you leave a couple tablespoons of bacon drippings behind. You’ll want it there so you can next sauté 1 sliced onion…
2 cloves of minced garlic…
And 2 cups of fresh, chopped spinach!
Go ahead and season your veggies with a little salt and pepper. Remove your spinach from the skillet once it has wilted down…
Then thrown 2 tablespoons of butter into your empty skillet.
Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of flour over your melted butter and whisk the two together over medium heat until your flour has cooked through (about 1 minute).
Now slowly whisk in 1 1/2 cups of milk and allow this mixture to thicken up over low to medium heat (about 2 minutes).
Go ahead and take your skillet off the heat and stir in 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese…
Your sautéed spinach and onions…
And don’t forget that bacon!
We’re going to pop this dip into a 400 degree oven oven for about 15 minutes, but before we do that let’s sprinkle just a little bit more cheese on top!
Hot out of the oven and perfect!
My friends and I kept it real by enjoying this pipping hot dip right out of the skillet.
Who needs pretty plates or cloth napkins when the dip is this good?!
