Default Re: Anyone make anything good lately?

Being no one has made anything good lately nor posted any recipes lately, guess I will. This was good.

Wilted Spinach n Bacon Salad

An old time dish for me and something I used to make at the table using a butane burner for dinner guests. Added a Salmon filet to make it a meal.

Wilted Spinach Salad

8 ounces fresh spinach (for two people)
2 eggs
8oz bacon, chopped (saving 3 tablespoons bacon grease)
Dozen or so mushrooms, sliced
˝ East Texas Sweet Onion (thin sliced)
Salt n Pepper to taste

3 tablespoons bacon grease
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Small squeeze of Lemon
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Kosher salt


Boil the Eggs to make Hard Boiled Eggs. While the Eggs are cooking chop the Bacon and cook it saving 3 tablespoons of the fat. Thin slice the Mushrooms and Onions. Salt and sauté each separately and save. Drain, peel, slice, pepper/salt the Eggs n set aside.

In a large pan add the ingredients of the dressing over low heat and whisk together. Add the Spinach, Mushrooms n Onion. Toss and immediately plate using thongs. Garnish with the Egg.
