Sausage and Chard

I needed a quick and easy dinner last night and I needed to use up some of the fresh greens I had in the refridgerator. I thought that this simple dinner would be terrific. And it was pretty tasty. I actually liked the leftovers this morning with a farm fresh fried egg on top better though...

Sausage & Chard

1 lb of your favorite pork sausage (I used one from a local farm)
3 stalks of chard
4 handfuls of fresh baby spinach
8 oz button mushrooms, cut
1 small onion diced
2-3 cloves garlic minced
2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
1 tsp of maple syrup (Grade B is the best)

In a large skillet, cook diced onion and garlic in either a dab of lard or butter. Stir until they are translucent and soft. Add sausage, turn up the heat and brown. Add chopped mushrooms. When mushrooms are browned add chopped chard and cut up spinach. Drizzle in the apple cider vinegar and maple syrup. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Serves about 4, but leftovers with a fried egg on top are really, great!
