I went to the grocery store fully intent on making this recipe from Epicurious.com “as is” with Escarole, and then I saw it… The Red Chard in all of its crimson beauty was calling my name. I had to have it!
Using Red Chard instead of Escarole was the only modification I made for this dish, and it turned out great. It also has a lot of things I try to take advantage of when I am planning my weekly meals. Number one, I’m a big fan of the one pot meal because it makes the entire prep/cook/clean process a breeze. (I used my Le Creuset Dutch Oven instead of a shallow pan so there would be plenty of room for the chard before it was wilted.) Also, if you’re a fan of bacon and have a hard time getting enough veggies, this is the side dish for you.
