Wilted Lettuce

•One head lettuce
•3 hard-cooked eggs
• cup sliced green onions
•Six to eight slices of bacon
• cup vinegar
• cup water
•1 tablespoon sugar
•Salt and pepper to taste

I’ve already torn a head of lettuce up, washed it and spun it in my salad spinner. To the lettuce I added a half cup of diced green onions. Now, I'm frying our bacon. Afterwards, I'll drain the bacon, crumble it up and set it aside.

To the bacon drippings I’ll add a cup water, a cup of vinegar, a tablespoon of sugar and a dash of salt and pepper. Then we'll stir it occasionally until it boils...

Ready for the last step? Slice a couple of these hard-boiled eggs and layer ‘em over the lettuce and onions, pour the hot dressing over the top, sprinkle the crumbled bacon over it
