Mashed potatoes with bacon and spinach
Add garlic and spinach. You can use whole leaves or cut them. 
Cook bacon, spinach and garlic for another 1-2 minutes or just until spinach is wilted. 

potatoes with bacon and spinach
Remove from the heat and transfer the bacon-spinach mixture on the plate with paper towel to absorb the fat.
When the potatoes are cooked (the inserted knife easily goes through), remove them from the heat and drain the water. 
Add cream cheese spread to potatoes and mash until smooth, but don’t over mash because it will become gluey.  
Stir in bacon-spinach mixture, taste to see if additional salt and pepper needed and serve.
