Juet is pronounced like "foot" but with a "J".

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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The was a delicious old world recipe. The bacon gives it great flavor. This could be eaten as a side or even a main dish. It's yummy!


potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks (about 4 - 5 medium)
1 bunch
fresh spinach, rinsed, stems removed
1/2 to 1 lb
bacon, fried crisp and crumbled, reserve the drippings
minced garlic to taste
salt and pepper to taste


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. Drain, leaving only enough water to keep the potatoes/spinach moist. Mash. Add bacon, bacon drippings, minced garlic, salt and pepper.
