    Aunt Sara’s Dutch Lettuce

    (Bacon Based Sweet and Sour Dressing)

    Submitted by Meowey

    1 Head of Lettuce - shredded
    4 Strips of Bacon - cut into ¼ inch dice (Use Kitchen Shears)
    ¼-Cup Vinegar
    ½-Cup Sugar
    3 Eggs
    2/3-Cup Water

    Brown diced bacon in a cast iron pan over medium heat – remove from heat
    In a small bowl whisk eggs, vinegar, sugar, and water
    After pan with bacon has cooled slightly add egg mixture and whisk slowly to combine
    Return pan to medium-low heat and stir slowly – mixture will bubble and thicken – continue to desired consistency – remove from heat

    Two options at this point

    For a wilted salad, add dressing to lettuce while hot – mix well

    For a crisp salad, cool dressing and add to chilled lettuce – mix well

    Don't know how I missed this when you posted it, but it looks great! I'm wondering if a bit o' mayo and maybe some cold peas would be good in there as well! Sprinkle a bit of sharp chedder on top, just for kicks.

    Thanks for all of your recipes, sir. They are top notch.
