Wilted Sweet & Sour Bacon Lettuce

From Lynne Wilson


4 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
bacon fat
1 egg
2 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. sugar
¼ tsp. salt
⅛ tsp. pepper
¼ cup light cream
1 large head Boston lettuce


Cook the bacon, remove it from the frying pan and crumble, reserving all the bacon fat in the pan.

Beat the egg, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, and cream together and set aside.

Wash, dry, and tear the lettuce into small pieces and put it into a large bowl.

Return the bacon fat to the heat. When it is hot, pour it over the lettuce. Mix well. Pour the egg mixture into the same pan and cook over medium heat until it boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Pour the hot sweet-and-sour mixture over the lettuce and stir well. Serve immediately.
