Aunt Lous' Wilted Lettuce™

This is a recipe based on my Aunt Lous' wilted lettuce salad.

I've used romaine lettuce but you can use your favorite dark greens. I've used a reduced fat bacon, but you can use your favorite bacon, turkey or even vegan bacon instead. If using vegan bacon, spray pan first with non stick cooking spray.

4 - 6 slices bacon
2 c. torn lettuce
Pinch each: salt, pepper

Rinse and pat dry lettuce, set aside.

Heat saute pan to medium high heat. Lower heat to medium, add bacon, salt, pepper and cook on both sides until desired crispness. 

Remove from pan and drain on a paper toweled lined plate.

Tear lettuce with clean hands and place into pan. Lower heat to medium low.

Cook lettuce for 3 - 5 minutes or until warm.

Transfer lettuce to a serving dish with a slotted spoon. Crush bacon with clean fingers over lettuce. 

Toss well.

Serves 4.
