  • 1 pound bacon
  • 2 hearts of romaine
  • 1/2 loaf french bread
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons bacon drippings (or olive oil)
  • salt/pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon Xanthan Gum* (optional, but very cool)


  • Prepare the bacon however you like your bacon; I bake mine at 400 until crisp, 12-14 minutes.
  • As bacon cooks, heat grill to medium. Cut both the french bread and romaine in half. Grill the bread, lettuce, and tomatoes for 2-3 minutes a side (using a grill pan as needed).
  • For the dressing, combine the oil, vinegar, and a tablespoon of water into a small blender or other cool mixing device and mix for 30 seconds. If using the Xanthan gum, add slowly when the blender is running.
  • Once everything is cooked, roughly chop the bacon/bread and separate the lettuce, plate, serve, enjoy, repeat.

*The xanthan gum (which is a natural ingredient found in everything) will thicken the dressing, adding a really great texture when paired with the grilled veggies.
