add onions to skillet and caramelize in rendered bacon fat

I trust any recipe that has that in it’s instructions.

I saw this bacon, onion, and cream pizza over at smitten kitchen and couldn’t help but give it a try.   To be honest it was the first time I had ever used fromage blanc or creme fraiche so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out.

It was great.  The spouse and I loved the combination of bacon and caramelized onions with the blended cheeses.  The locally made fromage blanc I found at my co-op had some garlic blended into it, but no worries, the hint of garlic was perfect.

I served it along side our new favorite pasta dish.

creamy parmesan orzo with peas

2 Tablespoons butter

1 1/4 cup orzo pasta

1 1/4 cup chicken broth

1 1/4 cup water

1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan

1 cup cooked peas

salt and pepper

Melt butter in medium saucepan.  Add orzo and cook, stirring constantly for 3 minutes.

Stir in broth and water.  Bring to boil and reduce heat to simmer.  Simmer until liquid is absorbed.  Stirring occasionally.  (around 15 – 20 minutes)

Remove from heat.  Stir in cheese and peas.  Season with salt and pepper.
