Exactly!!!!

That's funny, because I use more Bacon than I put in this Step by Step.

However, since Mrs Bear doesn't want to use as much as I do, I cook extra Bacon & put it right on my salad, before pouring the dressing on.

Thanks Greg!!

That's Great, It's interesting seeing what areas of the Country have seen or eaten this stuff, because it seems the heart of Hot Bacon Dressing country is SouthEast PA. (PA Dutch/German area)

Back when I was a kid working in a restaurant we served this and u just loved it, if u inhaled as u were taking a bite it would choke you up. But I rember it being a translucent dressing think this is the same thing ?

I've had some in a restaurant that was almost transparent, and it tasted just about like mine. I believe the flour & egg is mostly to thicken it, so it doesn't just run through the salad & lay on the bottom of the bowl. The translucent stuff wasn't as thin as you would think, but I don't know why without flour.

As for the inhaling---You don't want to nuke it to a boil, and then inhale near it !!! It's the Vinegar.

We use it on Lettuce & Tomato salads----Dandelion is just too Bitter for us. The Bacon Dressing helps, but the leaves are still too Bitter.

 

Enjoy,

Bear

I live in Charleston SC, but originally hail from PA Dutch country, and was pleasantly surprised to run across this posting about hot bacon dressing, one of my favorite Dutch condiments. We still use my grandmother's recipe , which is similar but with a small amount of grated onion and dry mustard added. It's great with lettuce, but I especially love it over wilted dandelion greens' which I rarely get any more down South (too many chemicals used on lawns down here, which was not the case when I lived in PA). We often had the dandelion greens and bacon dressing with homemade pot pie; certainly one of my fondest culinary memories growing up there. I don't recall the dandelion greens being very bitter, and I don't think I would have eaten them as a youngster if they were bitter. We always picked our own dandelion- it was easy to find the greens in the otherwise brown turf, and would cut them off using a paring knife. Grnadma always told us to only pick the smaller plants/greens that hadn't yet developed any flower buds, as these wouldn't be bitter. Once the plant got larger or developed flower buds, they weren't edible any more. I don't know if there is any validity to her admonition or whether it's just an old wives tale, as I've never tried harvesting or eating budding or large leafed dandelion, but with Spring coming, you might try it again with that in mind and pick the smaller, budless greens. I'm getting ready to smoke some Canadian bacon on Tuesday using your recipe, and I appreciate the effort you've put forth in your recipes. I'm looking forward to eating the bacon. Thanks!

Yes---Your Grammy was right. The young ones are more Tender & less Bitter. It's the white liquid inside that is bitter.

All we eat is Lettuce & Tomato, because Mrs Bear still doesn't like Dandelion & Endive greens. 

 

Now that I have someone on here that knows PA Dutchmen, I got a good one for you.

After all the Ethnic jokes over the years, Italian, Pollock, etc, I only ever heard one PA Dutch Joke, and I think it's real funny if you know what PA Dutch people are like.

 

Here it is:

A Buddy of mine told me they were going to get rid of All the PA Dutch people in our area.

I asked him "How are they going to do that?"

He said, "They're going to plant a Dandelion in the middle of the Pennsylvania TurnPike".

 

 

BTW: I'm glad you like my "Step by Steps" and my "Step by Step Index".

i " enchoyed" that! Really an inside joke of sorts, with typical dry PA Dutch humor. I don't know if you've ever heard any of the Professor Schnitzel bits back in the 1950's-60's, but my grandparents loved listening to him on the radio, at the Kutztown Folk Festival, and I think they must have had records of his. He was a PA Dutch standup comedian, if you can believe there ever was such a thing, and that joke sounds like something he'd come up with.
