Wilted lettuce..

I made this for supper last night. My lettuce and onions are doing well, but those alone can get "mundane". Here's the recipe: Fry 1/2 # bacon until crisp. Remove and crumble,save the drippings in the pan.Set bacon aside. On a serving platter, put a bed of lettuce;as much as desired,torn into bite sized pieces. Chop 2 or 3 green onions on top of that. Chop 2 boiled eggs on top of that. Add the reserved bacon. In the frying pan,to the drippings, add 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/3 cup sugar, pepper and ground mustard (to taste-I used abt 1/4 tsp). Bring it to a boil, and when the sugar is dissolved, pour it over your lettuce platter. Simple,yet delicious!

This recipe also works very well with fresh spinach...just make sure you get all the sand out of the spinach!

In the mountains they call it "killed lettuce".  My father-in-law also added small chunks of sharp cheddar cheese to his.

Funny name!! I might try the cheese, I think it would be good. Thanks!!

I  have fixed this but didn't put the ground mustard in mine.  My husband doesn't like egg so I always put sliced egg on my lettuce before I eat. I might have to try it with the ground mustard next time. thanks for sharing .
