Easy
  • 8 strips, FARMER JOHN® CLASSIC BACON
  • ¼ cup finely chopped shallots, from 2 shallots
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoons mustard
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 9 cups baby spinach
  • 1½ cups Thinly sliced white button mushrooms
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
  1. Place the bacon in a nonstick skillet and fry over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp.
  2. While the bacon cooks, start the dressing – in a mixing bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey, mustard, salt, and pepper.
  3. Transfer the cooked bacon to a paper towel–lined plate.
  4. Pour the bacon fat into a bowl and return 5 tablespoons of the bacon fat to the skillet. Add the shallots to the skillet and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until softened.
  5. Add the bacon fat and shallots from the skillet to the vinegar mixture and whisk to combine. Add the spinach and mushrooms and toss. Top the salad with bacon and boiled eggs.
