My Great-Grandmother brought this recipe from Belgium when she happily graced our shores slightly before the 1900's. She, my grandmother and my mom loved to make it. My sibs and I even liked it cold and shared it with our friends.
For 2 people, use about 3 strips of bacon and 2 cloves garlic.

1Cook the peeled and chunked potatoes in boiling water until tender. Add the spinach a couple minutes before removing potatoes from heat. Cook until spinach is tender.
