Twice Baked Potatoes & Arugula Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing
I've seen several recipes for salads with a warm bacon dressing, and I have to admit, I was intrigued. I've been wanting to try it out for some time now and finally got a chance to last night.
I was in the midst of making some other food for the week to come and bacon was one of my ingredients. I had some extra and planned to use it to make twice baked potatoes (one of my favorite foods ever!) and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try bacon dressing -- not to mention I had also just purchased a bunch of arugla from the store.
This is a simple, light dinner, perfect for days like yesterday when we had a late lunch! I ended up making up my own salad dressing recipe based on a couple that I saw and the ingredients I had on hand. Here are both recipes:
Twice Baked Potatoes
- Large Russet baking potatoes (one per person)
- Cheddar cheese
- Green Onions, thinly sliced
- Bacon Bits (much better if it's from fresh, fried bacon)
- 5 slices of bacon
- 1 1/2 cups of arugula
- 3 green onions, thinly sliced
- Balsamic vinegar
- Lemon juice
