Bacon and Leeks


Bacon is one of those foods that's so good people like to wrap other foods in it. However, if you're a purist and appreciate your bacon simple, this is a great recipe to whip up at Imbolc. The fiery taste of onions an garlic is offset by the smokiness of the bacon. Enjoy this heaped onto some nice warm Braided Bread.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 pound of bacon
  • 3 fresh leeks, chopped
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • Salt
  • Pepper


Fry the bacon and drain off excess fat. Remove from pan, and then chop into small pieces. Return to pan, and add garlic, leeks and onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste. When onions are opaque, remove from heat and serve scooped onto warm, soft bread.

**Note: If you're a vegetarian, try this with strips of sliced zucchini or hash-brown style potatoes in place of the bacon. It's still delicious!
