Rib-eye with Sauteed Onions, Mushrooms and Bacon

Our family loves sauteed onions and mushrooms over a nice steak, but this time around, when I opened the refrigerator, I spied an open package of bacon calling my name and the addition of bacon to the mix was delicious!

I can make up this mixture and eat it as a side dish, I love it so much, but most people will probably want to top a grilled steak or even a baked potato with it.

Sauteed Onions, Mushroom and Bacon

Butter (about 3 T)
1 large onion (I like to use yellow onions or sweet yellow onions whenever I can!)
1 package or can of mushrooms (4 - 8 oz. depends on how many you want to add)
1 - 7 slices of bacon (again, depends on how many you want to add)
salt and pepper
(a dash of sugar if you would like - I'll explain in a moment)

Place the butter in a pan over medium to medium high heat.  Add chopped onion, sliced mushrooms and chopped bacon.  Cook all, stirring every now and then, until it's all golden brown.  You don't want to cook it too fast.  10 - 15 minutes is great.  The onion and butter will make this naturally somewhat sweet but if you want to help it along, you can add just a dash (like, 1/2 teaspoon) of sugar, but this is completely optional.  Season with salt and pepper.
