Swiss Chard with Garlic and Bacon

The bacon and garlic really enhance the flavor of the chard in this recipe ... this works equally well with Swiss chard or rainbow chard. 4

slices bacon, chopped
bunch swiss chard
cloves garlic, roughly chopped
tbsp butter
and pepper


  • 1 Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until just browned, stirring occasionally.
  • 2 While the bacon is cooking, separate the chard leaves from the stems. Tear the leaves into rough pieces, then chop the stems into small pieces.
  • 3 Add the garlic to the skillet. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 4 Add the butter and chard stems and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 5 Stir in the chard leaves into the skillet. Toss with the garlic/bacon/chard stem mixture. Continue cooking and tossing until just wilted. It should soften, but should mostly retain its shape.
  • 6 Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
