    I am the same way. I work at an applebee's and we have a hot bacon dressing to die for and after searching for anything remotely close and coming up with nothing, I came across this recipe. I just made it and it's quick and easy and exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much for posting this!  -  21 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yummy dressing. I thought it might be a bit too sweet so I cut the sugar to 1 cup and doubled up on the bacon. Perfect! Thanks Mary.  -  23 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    After trying several Hot Bacon Dressing recipies over the past few months, I think we finally found a winner! My husband loved the flavor, and I was happy with the ingredient list and ease of preparation. It even re-heated very well.  -  15 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
