Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cook the bacon, remove it from the frying pan and crumble, reserving all of the bacon fat in the pan.

Step 2

Beat the egg, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, and cream together and set aside.

Step 3

Wash, dry, and tear the lettuce into small pieces and put it into a large bowl.

Step 4

Return the bacon fat to the heat. When it is hot, pour it over the lettuce. Mix gently. Pour the egg mixture into the same pan and cook over medium heat until it boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Pour the hot sweet and sour mixture over the lettuce and mix. Serve immediately.

NOTE: The cooked dressing for this salad looks somewhat curdled, but it tastes excellent.


No special items needed.

While not the Wilted Lettuce Salad I have been looking for we really enjoyed. As for the lettuce I finally went with a tri color head of Living Lettuce which worked well for me. Daughter and I both agreed it could easily be seen as a meal in itself and will see to reruns.
