Rafferty’s Hot Bacon Dressing

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!

  1. In a saucepan, mix together the sugar, cornstarch, salt, water, and vinegar. Bring all the items to a boil until it thickens.

    I just made this and it was like paste. Is that a typo on the cornstarch? I think 3 teaspoons would make more sense.

      You are right Nancy1 I am SO sorry. It should be 3 teaspoons and not tablespoons. I have corrected that and thanks for bringing it to my attention!

        Jennifer your initial posted recipe DOES read 3 teaspoons, It never said TABLESPOONS, So you didn’t need to make any corrections. I love this dressing, I will have to try it just the way you wrote it. Thx
