Beet Greens with Bacon

Source: Everyday Food, January 2010

  1. Cut greens off beets; discard stems and chop leaves. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium until golden brown, 6 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate; pour off all but 1 teaspoon fat from skillet. Add scallions and cook until softened, 1 minute.

    This is so good! I saw Martha make this on her show and decided to try it. Amazing! I threw in the beets as well after baking them and it made a wonderful dinner. Now if I could just get my kids to try it...
