Stacks on Stacks: Bacon Edition

 

Crispy bacon is not just for breakfast - it makes a great addition to vegetable-based dinners. Plan to make this stack of meals and utilize winter's bounty of potatoes, broccoli and Brussels sprouts.

Candied Bacon with Smashed Potatoes and Roasted Vegetables - Roasted broccoli takes on a hearty flavor and it stands up well to the chili-dusted bacon.

Broccoli, Mushroom and Potato Soup - All the flavors of a stuffed baked potato in a bowl - perfect for a quick dinner on a chilly day.

Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Potato Salad - If you haven't tried raw Brussels sprouts before, don't be afraid! In the same family as cabbage, they are a good complement to the mellow potatoes in this salad.
