Highlighted Deal of the Week: Bacon
This week, Fresh & Easy has an AMAZING deal on Bacon! They are offering thick, center cut, sliced or applewood bacon (12-16 oz) for $2 per package! This is a GREAT deal and now is the time to stock up. Did you know that Americans eat over 32 BILLION pieces of bacon each year? Why not, it’s delicious! Here is a great recipe for a spinach salad with warm bacon dressing that we love.
2 large hard boiled eggs
8 pieces thick-sliced bacon, chopped
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
4 large white mushrooms, sliced
1 small red onion, very thinly slicedDirections:
Remove the stems from the spinach and wash, drain and pat dry thoroughly. Place in large mixing bowl and set aside.
Slice each hard boiled egg into 8 pieces and set aside.
Fry the bacon and remove to a paper towel to drain, reserve 3 tablespoons of the rendered fat. Crumble the bacon and set aside.
Transfer the bacon fat to a small saucepan set over low heat and whisk in the red wine vinegar, sugar and dijon mustard. Season with salt & pepper.
Add the mushrooms and onion to the spinach and toss. Add the dressing and bacon and toss to combine. Distribute egg slices on the top and serve immediately.
