  • 4 rashers of bacon

  • Bechamel
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 400 milliliters milk
  1. Chop the bacon and coarsely chop the leeks (only the white part). Wash and clean the spinach.
  2. Lightly cook the bacon in a big pot about 3 min. and then add the the leeks and the spinach turn down the heat and cover with the lid stirring every so often. When the leeks and spinach loose all their water pour in the wine and wait to evaporate.

Am I missing the "cheese" ingredient? I don't see it listed in ingredients but a reference is made to cream cheese!
