Mushroom-Broccoli-Onion-Bacon dish

First made 2/21/2023 – This was an easy side dish with fresh components and good flavor. It was inspired by the recipe here.


6 bacon strips, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup sliced fresh portabello mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped green onions from the greenhouse
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 cups fresh broccoli florets


    1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute mushrooms and onions in the drippings for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Add broth, salt if desired and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-4 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring broccoli and 1 in. of water to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5-8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain. Add broccoli and bacon to the mushroom mixture; toss to coat.
