I got this from Alton Brown and it was delicious.

8 ounces young spinach
2 large eggs
8 pieces thick-sliced bacon
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 large white mushrooms, sliced
3 ounces red onion (1 small), very thinly sliced

BAKE the bacon on a pan that allows you to collect the grease. I used a broiling pan.

Hard boil the eggs. Chop them into 8 pieces each.

Take the bacon grease and put it in a small sauce pan over low. Add the red wine vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt, and pepper. Mix together.

Toss the spinach, sliced shrooms, and onion in a large bowl.

Add the dressing and toss again. Crumble the bacon on top.

Dish it up add the eggs on top.

LMAO!

I'm gonna have to try Alton's. Sounds good.

Normally, my motto is that salad is what food eats, but for a bacon salad, I can make an exception. I'd sure like to see some avocado worked into the mix though. I'll add some slices on top.

Okay, so I tried this last night. It was okay. Could use some help. I'd be inclined to double the dijon and add some feta crumbles next time. The salad just lacks zing.
