Delicious Cheese, Bacon, Spinach, & Rice Dish

This one has evolved in our house over time. Here's the current version:

- Jasmine Rice;
- sweet yellow onion, finely chopped;
- one clove of garlic;
- Spinach (we use frozen). I've also used fresh spinach from the garden, but it takes an astonishing amount considering how it cooks down;
- freshly ground black pepper;
- bacon, fried to almost crispy and chopped into smallish pieces;
- good quality cheese (we've used aged sharp cheddar, or also Oka).

- Cook the rice (we use our trusty rice cooker);
- saute the onion in butter until golden, add finely chopped garlic clove;
- cook the spinach according to package directions, add freshly ground black pepper;
- grate the cheese;
- mix togeher rich with the onion/garlic bits of golden deliciousness, incorporate the spinach and the bacon, stir all together;
- add in grated cheese, and stir it all up.

A great simple supper, or a side dish in a smaller portion.
