Sauteed Beet Greens with Bacon and Gruyere

Lucy is an excellent cook and has a wonderful way of taking what is available seasonally and turning it into something so delicious.   This recipe will help you make use of the beautiful beet greens attached to the roots.  They’re just too good to waste.

1 pkg BBF Bacon

1 medium onion, 1/2 inch dice

Beets Greens – from one bunch of beets, chopped coarsely, include both stems and leaves

Gruyere Cheese, coarsely grated

Balsamic Vinegar

Cook a few slices of bacon until desired doneness.  Remove and add chopped onion and cook until translucent and tender.  Add chopped beet greens and sauté lightly. Don’t cook the life out of them!  Just a quick, hot sauté.  Remove from pan and place in serving bowl.  Allow to sit for a few minutes to cool slightly.  Add grated Gruyere cheese.  Chop bacon and sprinkle over the top.   Add a splash of balsamic vinegar to finish
