Paleo Bacon Beet Green Crisps

beet greens

I bought fresh beets this week, and they came with the greens and all.  I decided to make some “chips” with them, though I think the word “crisps” is more appropriate for leafy greens made into chips.  They’re thin, delicate, and crispy.  I kept these super simple.  It’s hardly a recipe.

Ingredients:

Leafy greens from 3 beets

3 Tbsp bacon fat

1/4 tsp salt

Directions:  Preheat oven to 300′.  In a saucepan, melt bacon fat.  Add in the beet greens, stirring to coat evenly.  Add in the salt.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Move greens to the parchment paper.  Lay them out nicely for even baking.  Bake for 15 minutes, flipping every 5 minutes.  Turn off oven and let them stay in there to crisp.  Continue checking them every 10 minutes.  It can take an additional 2-30 minutes to crisp, especially the big leaves.  Enjoy!
