If you love eating at Rafferty’s then you are going to flip when I tell you that I have figured out how to make Rafferty’s Hot Bacon Dressing!
Rafferty’s has always been mine and Stephen’s date night restaurant. It is a little on the pricey side, so we use it as a special place to go for just the two of us when we want to be alone and enjoy a fabulous steak dinner.
With my steak dinner, I get a salad with that is covered in hot bacon dressing that will cause you to blow your top!
No. . .it’s not hot with spices, but it is warm, gooey, and filled with bacon. I am telling you, it is the ultimate dressing for any salad. It’s not very healthy because it is full of sugar, but drizzled over a plate of greens, it becomes pure heaven!
How to Make Rafferty’s Hot Bacon Dressing
This post was originally published in Jan 2010 but has had some changes made to it so we are republishing it with new photos!
To make this dressing, start by frying up 8 slices of bacon. Whatever you do, do not pour off that grease because you are going to use it for the dressing.
While your bacon is frying, dice up 1/2 an onion. I like to use sweet vidalia onions because they add a little something extra to a dish.
When the bacon is done frying, remove from the pan and place on a cutting board.
Throw your onions in the pan and let them saute in the bacon grease until they are translucent.
While the onions are finishing, chop up the bacon and throw it back into the frying pan with the onions.
Here is my version and believe me, it taste even better than the dressing at Rafferty’s!
