DIRECTIONS

  • In a large skillet fry the bacon until fully cooked but not crisp.
  • Remove bacon and fat from skillet, then return 1/4 cup of the fat to the pan.
  • Stirring constantly, add the flour and brown in fat to a deep golden brown.
  • Add the water carefully as it will splatter some (I find it splatters less if I dump all the water in quickly) and stir well. Then add the milk and bring to a rolling boil stirring frequently.
  • Add the lettuce and cut up bacon to the browned fat and flour mixture.
  • Bring back to a rolling boil, stirring contantly.
  • Add eggs to mixture making sure to stir it thoughout the soup.
  • Reduce heat to low and continue to cook for about 1/2 hour (until lettuce is cooked down).
