Cipollate con Pancetta (Bacon-Wrapped Scallions)

Cipollate con Pancetta

Cipollate con Pancetta (Bacon-Wrapped Scallions)
recipe from Chef Steffani Adaska, Director of A Taste of the Mountains
Yields: 4 Servings

Who doesn’t like bacon? Right? My kids and I can never get enough.

This tasty dish originates from Italy. In Italy, they make with pancetta,  often called Italian bacon. That’s a true enough  description, but unlike American bacon, which is most often smoked, pancetta is unsmoked pork belly that is cured in salt and spices. It’s then dried for a several months.

I serve this as an appetizer with a a horseradish cream drizzle, or as a side dish. It is so easy to prepare and always a crowd pleaser. I like with the pancetta or the traditional smokey bacon. Try it both ways. Choose your fave!!

  • 24 large scallions, trimmed of roots and green tips
  • 8 strips bacon (or pancetta)
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Wrap 3 scallions together with 1 strip of bacon. Repeat with remaining scallions and bacon and season with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a 12″ skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add bacon-wrapped scallion bunches, and cook, turning as needed, until browned and crisp on all sides, 6–8 minutes.
Alternatively, you can do this over the grill for added flavor. Either way they are delish. Serve hot. Enjoy!
