10 ounces spinach, washed and stems removed

  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crispy, 15 minutes. Pour the egg mixture into skillet over the bacon, stirring constantly so as to not allow the eggs to scramble, and scraping any brown bits off bottom of skillet. Cook until thickened, 5 minutes. Remove the bacon dressing off the heat to cool slightly.
