BEWARE: This hearty, satisfying dip is hard to stop eating. The flavors meld perfectly and if you take this to a party you'll never have to take home leftovers. Perfect for "mixed-non-keto" gatherings or as a starter. A great way to get kids to eat spinach too.

Fry the bacon in a pan until crisp. Set the bacon on paper towels to drain. Preheat your oven to 350F.
Chop bacon finely and reserve some if you want to sprinkle it on top when you serve the dish. It's not necessary but it's a nice touch.
Mix ALL ingredients besides cheese topping (and bacon if using) until combined and dump into an oiled baking dish. Taste before putting it into the oven in case you want to add more salt or pepper.Smooth top and sprinkle on "topping" mozzarella.
Bake until heated through and bubbly with the top slightly browned. About 30-35 minutes is usually enough.
Serve with veggies, low carb crackers or whatever you like.
