Wilted Spinach Salad

We used to have Wilted Spinach Salad as kids, I'm not exactly sure what recipe my mom used, but this version was pretty tasty.  My dad loved it and now I see why.  It is an easy and very tasty salad.  If you think ahead and store a bit of the extra bacon drippings in the fridge you can heat it up and make fresh dressing throughout the week.

Wilted Spinach Salad

Two large handful of washed baby spinach
Red onion
Sliced mushrooms
1-2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
1 hard boiled egg, chilled, peeled, and sliced

2 Tablespoons bacon drippings
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1-2 teaspoon sugar
Heat bacon drippings in a pan and then add remaining ingredients.  Whisk to combine and then pour hot dressing over salad.  Toss and enjoy immediately.
