Low(ish)-Fat Creamed Spinach with Bacon

Well, okay, I'm not sure you could call this "low fat," but it's definitely lower in fat than its delicious, heavy-cream-utilizing evil cousin. And it's really good.

2 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. minced onion
3 tbsp. crumbled bacon
2 tbsp. flour
2 cups milk (I used 1%)
2/3 cup parmesan cheese
2 10 oz. boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
Salt to taste
A few grates of fresh nutmeg
Cook the onion and bacon briefly in the butter, about 3 minutes. Add the flour and cook another 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the milk and cook, stirring frequently, until thickened. Stir cheese and spinach into sauce. Season with salt and nutmeg.
