  • 6 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 (12-oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed

  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese


  1. 1. Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. 2. Drain spinach well, pressing between paper towels.
  3. 3. Spread half of potatoes in a lightly greased, shallow 11- x 7-inch baking dish; sprinkle evenly with half of pepper. Spread spinach over potatoes; sprinkle with bacon. Top with remaining potatoes and remaining pepper.

  7. To lighten: Substitute turkey bacon for bacon, or reduce the amount of regular bacon; use reduced-fat cream cheese and sour cream.
