You'll begin to notice a common thread in my ingredients as I add recipes to this site. One of my favorite cooking ingredients is bacon! Also, I have a pretty heavy Pennsylvania Dutch influence to my cooking (from my in-laws of 15 years). I've never been a potato fan but with Hot Lettuce on them, I could eat them every day! This is served over plain boiled potatoes. Sounds strange but the sweet and sour aspect of Hot Lettuce goes so well with potatoes.


  • 6 slices chopped bacon
  • 1/3 Cup cider vinager
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 Cup water
  • 1 TBS + 1 tsp. flour
  • 1/3 Cup sugar (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 head chopped iceburg lettuce


  • Fry bacon in large skillet and drain all but a couple tablespoons of the grease.
  • In a shakeable container, add the rest of ingredients except for the lettuce. Shake it up until well combined. Taste it - if you want it sweeter, add a bit more sugar, not tart enough, add some more vinegar.
  • Add liquid to bacon in skillet and heat until thick. If it gets too thick, simply add some water to thin it out. 5 minutes before serving, add lettuce and let it wilt. Serve over boiled potatoes.
