I am the same way. I work at an applebee's and we have a hot bacon dressing to die for and after searching for anything remotely close and coming up with nothing, I came across this recipe. I just made it and it's quick and easy and exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much for posting this!
I found that the recipe wasn't specific enough and didn't explain when to stop reducing. I ended up with bacon caramel. It might have been me being a twit, but I usually don't have trouble doing a recipe for the first time. More detail would be helpful.
Yummy dressing. I thought it might be a bit too sweet so I cut the sugar to 1 cup and doubled up on the bacon. Perfect! Thanks Mary.
After trying several Hot Bacon Dressing recipies over the past few months, I think we finally found a winner! My husband loved the flavor, and I was happy with the ingredient list and ease of preparation. It even re-heated very well.
This is a very tasty dressing and I served it over spinach salad. My family said it was a keeper. I changed a couple things as I was making this recipe. I only used 3/4 cup sugar and added 2 tbsp. bacon drippings as suggested by another reviewer. I also read reviews on this recipe saying it became very thick. I don't believe this is suppose to be a thick dressing. I cooked the dressing over medium heat, stirring contantly until the sugar was melted and continued cooking for only a couple minutes more. It turned out perfect.
Delicious! The only thing I do different it cut up the bacon before I fry it. That way I don't have to crumble. It seperates as it fries and the quality is much better!
Oh so good! I cut back on the sugar a bit and just stirred until I was happy with the consistency. This is terrific on spinach salad!
I have finally found the recipe I have been looking for. My Grandparents always made this every spring with dandelion, but no one has ever written it down. Thank you!
