Espinaca Sandwiches

Ever since I was a little girl, my mom would make these amazing little sandwiches every so often. I don't know if I really liked them because she trimmed the crust and cut them into cute triangles, but it was a way for her to get me to eat spinach. Plus they were crammed with bacon. BACON! And this was YEARS before bacon became the hot new food trend. Cream cheese? Mayonnaise? What more could I possibly want in a sandwich?

I was thinking about these sandwiches a few months ago and started an intense online search. I found NOTHING. Nada. Zilch. Zero. I asked my mom about the sandwiches, and she promptly sent me the recipe, a scanned copy of an old recipe card. I have NO idea where Mom got the recipe, but as usual, she knocked it out of the park. 

I can't stop eating these things now; it's as if I'm making up for all of the years away from home (I moved to Birmingham at 13 for high school and then stayed for college, work, etc). Luckily, these are easy and super cheap to make - in fact, I got every single ingredient for these at ALDI

Espinaca Sandwiches
adapted from Mom
1 package fresh spinach
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 lb bacon, cooked & crumbled
1/2 bunch green onions, chopped
Seasoned salt
White sandwich bread

Combine the cream cheese & mayonnaise. Stir in the bacon and green onion. Spread on bread. 

Sprinkle with seasoned salt & top with spinach. Trim crusts and chill until ready to serve. Cut into cute triangles or squares if desired. This recipe should yield 6-8 full-size sandwiches, depending on how generous you are with the spread. 


  1. Want want want want! I think I'm going to make these for a little family birthday party this weekend.
