Sunday Brunch - Spinach Salad

For spinach salad as a meal, which I was serving, I like to allow 4 to 6 cups of washed and dried spinach per person, 1 boiled egg each, and 2 or 3 slices of bacon. Unless you are feeding someone like my husband, then it is about 3 boiled eggs and 12 slices of bacon. Top all that with several slices of red onion and raw chopped mushrooms. Drizzle (or "kill" if you prefer) with warm bacon dressing.

Warm Bacon Dressing
3 Tbsp. warm bacon fat
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

Over medium low heat, add garlic to bacon fat and cook for about 1 minute. Stir in sugar and mustard. Add the vinegar and stir well. loosening brown bits from pan. Continue stirring until the dressing comes together and thickens. Pour over composed salad.
