  • Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels; chop when cool enough to handle. Transfer bacon to a bowl.

  • Dissolve brown sugar with red wine vinegar, salt, and black pepper in the hot skillet over medium heat, whisking until brown sugar has dissolved. Stir bacon into dressing; adjust seasoning. Pour hot bacon dressing over lettuce wedges.

We enjoyed this is was a nice change of pace. I did add about another tsp of brown sugar I just thought it needed to be a bit sweeter for me. It paired very well with the clam chowder I made for dinner. Thanks for the tasty submission! Read More

I'm basically just rating the dressing which tasted exactly like its ingredients: bacon grease and vinegar. Huge bacon-lover here but I just didn't care for this all that much. Maybe my bacon produced too much grease. Glad I didn't add salt; the bacon provided enough. I would add the grease in increments to try to get a good balance. Read More

The red wine vinegar is strong so I added 2 more tablespoons of brown sugar. I microwaved some bacon bits in a bowl and added the mixture to the bacon and served. Tasted really good. Read More
