Bennigan's Hot Bacon Dressing



I have never tried this yet but would love to make it. For right now, I'm dieting so I am controlling my fat intake. I minimize myself from eating food with lots of dressing and if possible, it should be light or with less fat. But still, the food that is not really good for us really tastes better! This Hot Bacon Dressing is perfect for your green salads and other food.

2 ounces Bacon grease
1/4 pound Red onion, dice fine
2 cups Water
1/2 cup Honey
1/2 cup Red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 tablespoons Cornstarch
1 tablespoon Tabasco (optional)

Place the bacon grease in a saucepan over medium−high heat.
Add the onions and saute until the onions start to blacken. While
the onions are carmelizing, in a mixing bowl place the water,
honey, pepper sauce, and red wine vinegar. Using a wire whisk,
mix the ingredients well.
Add the cornstarch and whisk well. After the onions have
carmelized, add the Dijon mustard to the onions and stir together
with a rubber spatula. Add the water, vinegar, pepper sauce
honey and cornstarch to the mustard and onions and mix.
Continue stirring until mix thickens and comes to a boil. Remove
from heat and store in refigerator until needed. To reheat use a
double boiler.
