January 24: Wilted Greens with Bacon Dressing

While going to the U of U, I loved to go to Marie Calendar's for their wilted lettuce salad with hot bacon dressing. This recipe is so much like I had at MC. You have to try this salad!

4 hearts romaine, chopped
4 slices bacon
2 TB sugar
1/4 c vinegar
salt and pepper

Place romaine in a serving bowl. In a skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon and crumble over greens. To the pan, add sugar and vinegar, and simmer until sugar is dissolved, scraping up bacon bits that cling to the bottom of the pan. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Pour hot dressing over greens and toss. Serve immediately.
