CF -

Never heard of that one! I did remember one of my all time favorite comfort foods though that my grandother would make for me everytime I visited - Letttuce with Hot Bacon Dressing. I'm tellin' ya, there's nothing like it. Never got grams recipe before she died, but this is the one I use that tastes much like it:
  • 1 egg
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 cups leaf lettuce - rinsed, dried and torn into bite-size pieces
  • Place egg in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil; cover, remove from heat, and let egg stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.
  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside. Reserve excess grease.
  2. Add onions to skillet with reserved grease and cook until tender. Add bacon, vinegar, water, sugar and salt. Stir and bring to boil.
  3. Place lettuce in a large bowl. Pour hot dressing over and toss well. Garnish with egg and radishes.
