Spinach soup with egg and bacon

Son: What are you making?
Me: Spinach Soup
Son making a grimace as an answer
Me: If you want to become big and strong like Popeye you have to eat spinach.
Son: Mom, you know that he is a cartoon character, right.
My sons have grown big and strong and eaten their spinach, and I probably should talk to them as grown ups now, but they are still my little boys.
I used

1 chopped onion
2 cloves minced garlic

1 chopped peeled potato
1 tbsp butter
500 g chopped spinach (use fresh or frozen)
1 liter stock
300 ml milk
300 ml cream
A pinch of ground nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste
Bacon and hardboiled egg to garnish
Heat the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onions, garlic and potato.
Stir and cover with a lid, let it sweat for about 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring a couple of times.
Pour in the stock and cook for 10 – 15 minutes until the potato is soft.
Add the spinach and cook for a couple of minutes until wilted. Use a immersion blender to blitz to a smooth soup.
Add milk and cream, nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste.
I garnich with bacon and eggs.
