Poke, Bacon and Eggs

Yesterday we gathered the first poke weed of the season. We gathered about a mixing bowl full. I decided to try something new to fix it.

Poke, Bacon and Eggs
First wash the poke weed. Trim off the leaves and peel the stalks, if using. Put in a pot. Cover with water. Bring to a boil, and boil for a few minutes. Drain, rinse and chop.

Chop up four pieces of bacon and fry in a pan. When the bacon is almost done, drain the excess fat, and add 2 TB chopped onion and 2 cloves chopped garlic. Cook until onion is soft.

Beat six eggs and add to the bacon and onions. Cook until eggs are dry, stirring frequently.

We had this for dinner last night with cornbread and beans. It made for a delicious, nutritious and economical meal, but I must say I have a love hate relationship with cornbread. You can see the love...

And the hate...

How do the kids get so many crumbs on the floor?
