It's Bacon, Baby!
Never in my life have I uttered the phrase, "What the...oh, man...yuck...this has TOO much bacon on it!" I've never even thought it. Which leads me to conclude that there is NO SUCH THING as too much bacon. BLT's, salads, bacon and eggs...I've had it all. As a matter of fact - now that I'm thinking about - the only thought I've ever really had is, "You know...this could really use a little MORE bacon. I didn't quite get enough of it."
My husband makes a delicious salad that has an onion and bacon topping on it. We have to be careful when serving it to friends because some people will simply scrape off the top and put it on their plate, leaving naked lettuce for the rest of us. Very uncouth, I know. But like I said - it has bacon in it and they want MORE. Here is the recipe:
Don's SaladCook the bacon in a pan until it is mostly crispy. Throw in the onion and continue cooking until it is soft and transparent. Let the bacon mixture cool a little (so that it doesn't wilt the lettuce). Put your lettuce in a large bowl. Using a slotted spoon sprinkle the onion and bacon mixture on it. If you are feeling particularly cheeky you could crumble some blue cheese on top. Serve it with the Ranch dressing on the side. Prepare to watch your trusted friends and family selfishly scraping the top of your salad onto their plates.
1-2 heads Romaine lettuce, chopped
5 slices raw bacon, chopped into 1/4 inch wide strips
1 onion, chopped
Ranch dressing (Don't buy it ready made. Buy the little pack and put a cup each of milk and mayo. It makes a HUGE difference.)
You know who has NICE bacon?? Humor-Blogs, that's who.
