I’m not sure you can really mess up a dish with mushrooms, onions, bacon and balsamic vinegar. I ended up being so impressed with the flavor, I didn’t actually serve it with any starch at all. It’d be good with pasta if you want, or just serve with bread too. Mmmm….
Start with about 2 servings of ground turkey (or chicken or beef) in a mixing bowl. Add a few cloves of fresh minced garlic, salt, pepper and parsley.
Shape into small meatballs and add to a heated, lightly greased pan. Immediately add a handful of chopped bacon.
Once they’ve gotten a little color on the outside (but not cooked all the way through yet), add 1/2 sliced onion.
After just a few minutes add a huge handful of sliced baby bella mushrooms.
Cook a few minutes, just until the mushrooms have cooked down. Remember, you need to be cooking on medium high heat. At this point, add at least 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar. It’ll be a little runny, don’t worry.
Cook down until the vinegar has thickened a LOT. If you’re into feta cheese, put some in! I didn’t have any though.
Serve plain or with whatever you want! Soooo good.
