Once bacon is crisp, remove it from the pan and place it on a paper towel to absorb the oil. Leave bacon grease in the pan for sauteing the chard.

 

 

 

Chop bacon and place it back into the pan with the diced onions. Saute at medium-high heat about 1 minute. (If using olive oil, saute onions in the olive oil on medium-high heat)
