A couple months ago I discovered a strong love of mushrooms. I mean I am just about obsessed with portabellas now. My mom and I are the two people in our house who will actually eat good food (a.k.a. we’re not too picky) and we love our dinners for two. Sometimes we go to a restaurant that only we enjoy, but sometimes we whip up something at home that only we like and appreciate. My favorite of these is our veggie meal.
This can easily be made totally vegetarian, but we like to cook our vegetables in bacon grease. Yum! We cook squash (2), zucchini (1), and portabella mushrooms all together in a large frying pan (along with the bacon, which we usually only use for flavor, although sometimes we’ll crumble and sprinkle it on top of the veggies. My brother will usually gobble the meat up once we’ve finished with it, though). Then we cover it and let it simmer until everything’s cooked and juicy. Once it’s all done, we spoon a bunch onto a plate and stuff ourselves! It is actually one of my very favorite meals.
- 1-2 squash, sliced
- 1-2 zucchini, sliced
- 1 pack of portabella mushrooms (sliced, non-sliced, button, large, it doesn’t matter as long as they’re sliced when you put them into the pan)
- 4-5 bacon strips
- Cook bacon in a large frying pan so that it is just shy of being done
- Add sliced veggies and mushrooms
- Stir/mix together
- Cover, reduce heat, and let simmer until everything is cooked through
- Serve immediately
