Dora's Dandelions

KASIA2

"Dandelions are a healthy, wonderful way to ring in the spring. You can find dandelion greens in the store but fresh picked are the best. Make sure to get them early in the spring for the most tender greens! Yes, the little flower buds are edible."

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, toss with butter, and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Remove the bacon and drain on paper towels. Set aside the pan with the bacon grease.
  3. In a large bowl gently toss together the dandelion greens and onion.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, vinegar, and sugar. Season with salt and pepper. Stir the egg mixture into the skillet with the warm bacon grease. Mix in the diced bacon and flour, and whisk for about 1 minute, until thickened to the consistency of salad dressing. Pour at once over the dandelions and toss to coat. Serve the greens over the potatoes.

We never thought dandelions could taste so good! I decided to go with an idea from another reviewer to slightly fry the dandelion greens and the onions together, then to coat them with the bac...

Great recipe. My mother made this every spring!

I didn't toss the boiled potatoes with butter, salt or pepper. I decided to saute the diced onion and shredded dandelion greens in the butter (they weren't too bitter this way, as the other revi...

This was so scrumptious! I carefully picked my tender spring dandelions and had no bitterness (but I already like dandelions anyway). Also, I cut the recipe to 3 servings but made a full batch...
