Sometimes when I’m chopping up vegetables for a recipe I have a handful (or two) of leftovers.  They either won’t fit in the pan or are just too many for whatever reason.  I like to keep these in a container in the refrigerator and add to them over the following few days.  Add a chopped onion or two, top with bacon and Voila!  A super easy and delicious supper!

This was an especially good treat after an afternoon of picking mullberries.  That’s not dirt on my nails–its mullberry stain.

Bacon Leftovers
