Wilted Romaine Or CabbageFrom krumkake 6 years ago
- Depending on the size of the head, about 1 to 1½ heads of romaine lettuce, chopped (I’m guessing I had about 6 heaping cupfuls of romaine in my bowl?) OR ½ head of cabbage, shredded shopping list
- ½ sweet onion, diced (my mom always used green onions and used most of the green tops as well, but a sweet onion works fine, too) shopping list
- 6 slices bacon, diced and fried until crispy (when cooked, remove bacon from pan to drain on paper toweling, but leave the bacon grease in the pan) shopping list
- ¼ cup white sugar shopping list
- ¼ cup cider vinegar shopping list
- 3 tablespoons water shopping list
- salt and pepper to your taste (I use about ¼ teaspoon salt and several shakes of pepper) shopping list
How to make it
- Have the romaine and onion chopped and ready in a large bowl.
- Fry the bacon and remove it from the pan, allowing it to drain on paper toweling.
- Add sugar, vinegar and water to the bacon grease in the pan.
- Season with salt and pepper to your taste (you want to keep it sweet, with just a hint of saltiness)
- Stir and cook over medium-high heat, bringing it to a quick boil and allowing the sugar to dissolve.
- Throw cooked bacon on top of the chopped romaine.
- Pour the hot vinegar dressing over the romaine and bacon.
- Toss quickly to coat the romaine and mix in the bacon.
- Serve immediately.
