Bacon Creamed Spinach

Doesn't that just sound wonderful?  So, yeah... I don't really have anything else to say about that except it is easy, cheap and delicious.

Bacon Creamed Spinach
3 slices bacon, chopped
1 10oz pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and water mostly squeezed out
1/4 C chopped onion (~1/4 of a med onion)
1 clove garlic, minced
2 oz cream cheese
2 Tbsp milk*
1 Tbsp parmesan

   Render bacon until crisp.  Remove and drain on paper towels.  Saute onions in bacon fat until translucent, ~5 min.  Add garlic and spinach.
   Melt in cream cheese and add milk.  Stir in parmesan.  Top with bacon.
   Serves 2-3.

*Whole milk, cream, buttermilk, or half and half will work.  Even 2% in a pinch, but stay away from 1% and skim for this.
