This is an old family favorite..........simple and very good.
Make and share this Wilted Lettuce recipe from Food.com.
- 1 head lettuce, torn
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄2 cup vinegar
- 10 slices bacon, fried and crumbled, reserve the grease
- Toss lettuce and onions slightly,just enough to combine ingredients and set aside for now.
- Mix sugar and vinegar.
- Pour off half the bacon grease,to the remainder,add the sugar and vinegar.
- Cook until thickened.
- When mixture has thickened slightly pour hot dressing over lettuce and add crumbled bacon,serve immediately.
Weirdly enough, we all liked this. We just kept eating serving after serving, finally deciding that it was the many facets of flavor that drew us to it... Salty, tangy, bacon-y.... Anyway, it was good, and definitely helped to deplete the surplus of lettuce in our fridge. I think I may have to get my cholesterol checked out now though :)
What an AWESOME way to use up a head of lettuce before it goes bad!!! I used sugar substitute, bacon bits and cider vinegar....Love it!!!!!
I grew up on this. My mom always loved to make this and still does. Now I make it. The only difference is we use only green onions chopped, and we do use white vinegar. It is sooo good, I always eat wayyyyy to much.
