8 ounces fresh chopped spinach
1/2 cup sour cream
3 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
a few dashes Tabasco sauce or other hot pepper sauce

In a heavy skillet, cook onion in baking drippings or butter until tender. Stir in spinach; cover and continue to cook for about 4 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream.

Place tomatoes in a lightly greased baking dish; bake at 375� for 20 minutes. Top each tomato with Mozzarella cheese and continue baking just until cheese is melted.
