Zucchini with Bacon and Onion is a delicious, very tasty side dish and kids love this (perfect to get kiddies to enjoy their veggies) – Always a winner !
I am a big believer in “bacon makes everything better” . Especially when it comes to green side dishes, as my family absolutely hate anything green, except when it is in a salad.
When I make this Zucchini with Bacon and Onion they are happy and would even have seconds.
Since I started cooking, way back when we got married, I always have colorful side dishes.
For instance, this Zucchini dish would go very well with sweet, caramelized Carrots (see my link at bottom of post) , which is always a hit with my family.
Add to that rice, or mashed potatoes and of course the meat/poultry of the day, and you have a lovely, balanced (both in color and flavor) meal.
This side dish can be made minutes before serving, which is what I normally do – a little stirring and frying and you are set.
I do the slicing in advance though, as that is usually what takes the longest when preparing a meal. Another preference of mine is that the Zucchini with Bacon and Onion, not to stand too long before serving.
The Zucchini will go soft after a while and it is so much better when there is still a tiny bit of crunch to the Zucchini.
