Cheesy Skillet Vegetables and Bacon
12" dutch oven
1 lb. bacon
2 (16 oz.) pkgs. frozen broccoli and cauliflower blend
1 lb. baby carrots
1 small onion
2 cloves minced garlic
2 cups grated cheese
Brown bacon in a dutch oven over a full spread of coals. While the bacon is cooking, cut the onions, carrots and potatoes into bite sized pieces. When the bacon is done, place on a paper towel to cool. Brown the onion in the bacon grease. When brown, add the vegetables and garlic. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. While the vegetables are cooking, crumble the bacon. When the vegetables are cooked, sprinkle with cheese and bacon. Place a lid on the dutch oven and allow to sit until cheese is melted. Serves 6-8.
The Finished Product
This was really good! Even my picky eaters ate this well. I wasn't expecting this to be as good as it was. The bacon really put this over the top. I'll be making this again. While mine was cooking, it was taking forever, so I put the lid on and put 8 or 10 coals on top to keep in the heat and help it cook faster. This was really simple and easy. Grade B+.
