Recipe: Lentils with Bacon and Mashed Potatoes



  1. Cook the lentils in a quart of water for an hour or until soft. Add more water as needed. Do not drain. Keep the liquid as a gravy. After they have cooked, add a little salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Cook the bacon, reserving the grease.
  3. Chop the onion and cook it in some of the bacon grease. Cut or crumble the bacon and add it to the onions.
  4. Make mashed potatoes as you normally would. You could even use instant potatoes.
  5. To serve, put a serving of mashed potatoes on a plate, then top with lentils, and onions and bacon. Sprinkle with vinegar if desired.
