Sauté garlic, salt and white pepper in ¼ cup butter in skillet over medium-high heat until garlic is softened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Wayyyyy too much butter!! I substituted the ham for spinach and added in/reducing some wine (before adding the cream) for my own preference. I also cooked the bacon FIRST to get it crispy and also because I didn't want to scorch the garlic. The 1/4 butter seemed to be enough but adding the rest (a whole stick!!) at the end was TOO MUCH!! Maybe adding another 1/4 would have sufficed but I feel like 1 1/2 sticks of butter (3/4 cup) as well as the 2 teaspoons of salt made the dish a bit too salty and too greasy from all the melted butter. Would definitely make this again with this recipe but with a few tweaks!
