Bacon Mushroom Stroganoff


I guess that's what I'm calling this.  
It was one of those make dinner by cleaning out the fridge.
It ended up being SO yummy that I wrote down how I made
it and gave it a name so we can have it again.
It's rich and creamy...the ultimate in comfort food.
Can't wait to make it again!

Here's what I did...

Betsy's Bacon Mushroom Stroganoff

Cut a package of thick sliced bacon into 1" pieces
using a pair of kitchen scissors.  Saute that in a large
skillet with 1 pound of sliced mushrooms and one 
large onion, chopped in 1" pieces.
Saute over medium heat until bacon is cooked
through and crispy, about 15 minutes.

While that is simmering away, in a small bowl, 
whisk together 1 can of Cream of Chicken soup
and 1 cup of sour cream.  Add 1 minced garlic clove.

When the bacon is crisp, drain about half the drippings
out of the skillet.  Stir in the creamy mixture and add enough
Half and Half to thin the sauce to the right consistency.
Reduce heat to low and stir until heated through.
Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.

To serve, spoon over cooked rice.

Yum.

  5. You had me at the bacon, mushrooms and onions. Sort of sounds like the beginning of my potato soup from last night.....the one where I nearly cut my finger off while dicing potatoes.

  8. I love how you clean your fridge.
    I think mine is hopeless at the moment.
    Best to toss it all out and start over. Without botulism. ha ha!
    (Okay, maybe it isn't quite THAT bad.)

  14. Double YUM! I've been eyeing this big bag of No-Yolks wide noodles for several days, wishing I'd remember to thaw some chicken before too late to cook supper---now there's a PLAN. It looks absolutely scrumptious. I'm already planning these lovely small green beans, cooked long and low with a big chopped onion and the bone from Sunday's ham, and some tiny sweet carrots sorta candied in a skillet.

    Maybe a little mustardy coleslaw, sliced long and thin to go with. There will be five of us, so this is the perfect recipe for a cool night.
