Swiss Chard and Mushrooms with Bacon and Herbs

Swiss chard is really good for you.  I’ve looking for ways to incorporate it into my diet in every possible way.  It’s a great substitute for spinach.  This recipe is a great side for the Roasted Pork Loin with Prosciutto and Apples I made last week.


Swiss Chard and Mushrooms with Bacon and Herbs


1 cup mushrooms, chopped

1/2 cup applewood smoked bacon, chopped

2 bunches swiss chard, chopped

2 teaspoons kosher salt plus more

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 cup minced onion

1 tablespoon finely minced garlic

1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme

1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper



Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and onion; cook, stirring often, until soft and lightly golden, about 8 minutes. Add mushrooms and bacon; cook, stirring occasionally, until flavors meld, about 5 minutes. Stir in thyme, and rosemary; cook for 1 minute. Stir in 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Remove from stove top and serve.
