Don’t let the plain-sounding title of this recipe give you the wrong idea. This is a great savory dish—after all, with bacon, cheese, walnuts, and green garlic, and spinach, how much more umami goodness could you want? You can also add hot chiles for added pizzazz.

  • ¼ cup minced onion (red or white)
  • 2 green garlic scapes minced, or 2 regular cloves garlic

  • Add the bacon and cheese; cover until warmed, about 3 minutes.
