  • Preheat oven to 300°F. Place half of the spinach in water and salt in large saucepan; cover. Cook on medium heat 5 to 8 min. or until spinach is wilted, stirring often. Remove spinach with tongs; drain in colander. Repeat with remaining spinach. Cool slightly.
  • Mix spinach and onion; divide mixture into 6 portions. Squeeze out excess water. Using your hands, form little "nests", making small indentation in center. Place nests in baking dish; place 1 cream cheese piece into center of each nest.
  • Bake 10 min. or until heated through.

Special Extra

Sprinkle each nest with cooked, crumbled OSCAR MAYER Bacon before serving.

    Me gusto mucho, es exelente para acompanar un platillo muy condimetado. A mi familia le encanto mas por el toquesito de philadelphia.
