Rafferty’s has always been mine and Stephen’s date night restaurant. It is a little on the pricey side, so we use it as a special place to go for just the two of us when we want to be alone and enjoy a fabulous steak dinner.
With my steak dinner, I get a salad with this hot bacon dressing that will cause you to blow your top! No. . .it’s not hot with spices, but it is warm, gooey, and filled with bacon. I am telling you, it is the ultimate salad dressing. It’s not very healthy because it is full of sugar, but drizzled over a plate of greens, it becomes pure heaven!
Here is my version and believe me, it taste even better than the dressing at Rafferty’s!
Hot Bacon Dressing
8 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
1 and 1/2 cups of sugar
3 teaspoons of cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
In a saucepan, mix together the sugar, cornstarch, salt, water, and vinegar. Bring all the items to a boil until it thickens.
Mix in cooked and crumbled bacon. Drizzle over salad greens and enjoy!
