WebMD Recipe from

  • 1 tablespoon
    whole mustard seed
  • 1 teaspoon
    clarified butter/ghee
  • 4 ounces
    pasture-raised bacon, chopped
  • 1 small
    shallot, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound
    young dandelion greens, rinsed well and coarsely chopped, if needed
  • 2 teaspoons
    red wine vinegar
  1. Place a cast iron or stainless steel skillet over a high flame and toss in mustard seeds, toasting gently until they release their fragrance – about two minutes. Transfer mustard seed to a bowl or dish to cool while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium and spoon one teaspoon butter into the skillet, allowing it to melt until it begins to froth. Add chopped bacon to the butter and fry it until crisped and its fat rendered. Transfer the bacon to the dish holding your toasted mustard seeds.
  3. Toss chopped shallot into the rendered bacon fat and fry until fragrant and softened, about three minutes.Stir in dandelion greens into the chopped shallot and bacon fat, and immediately turn off the heat as the greens will wilt in the skillet’s residual heat. Pour in two teaspoons red wine vinegar and continue stirring the greens until wilted to your liking.
  4. Transfer to a serving dish and dress with toasted mustard seed and crisped bacon.
