Oh, boy! Was this so delicious! I was given two large bunches of organic red Swiss chard and was searching for a good recipe when I came across this one. Since I had so much chard, I needed to double up on the other ingredients. I also had to make some minor changes due to what I had on hand, and took the suggestion of one person to add some bacon. How could I go wrong there?!
I chopped about 6 slices of bacon, browned it, drained on paper towels, and reserved about 1/2 Tbs of the drippings. I added the drippings to the butter and EVOO. It made a heavenly concoction!
The only wine I had was a good quality dry Marsala. I used it and was delighted with the flavor. I added a heaping tsp of Chicken Base for flavoring.
Instead of Parmesan, I had a bit of freshly grated Asiago cheese.
The end result was so good, but the next day, I decided to toast some slivered almonds and add them in! Perfection!
I am so happy with the results, and there is sooo much of it, I decided to freeze it and contribute it as a vegetable side for Resurrection Sunday! I have a good feeling that the other guests will love this as much as I did!
Danny Boy, thank you for this lovely recipe! It stands well enough on its own, yet it lends well to a little creativity and is forgiving if one must make substitutions!
