Directions

  1. Cut your bacon into lardons, fry in a skillet until crispy and remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel.
  2. To make the dressing: Reserve bacon grease in skillet. Add the mustard, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper to the skillet, stir to combine and remove from the heat.
  3. In a saucepan large enough for all 4 eggs fill 2/3rds with water and add the distilled vinegar. When water is at high simmer stir the water around to create a whirlpool then drop the eggs in and cook no more than 3 1/2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain the water and place on a paper towel.
  4. In four salad bowls add the torn Boston lettuce pieces and some grape tomatoes. Top with the poached egg and a few of the lardons. Drizzle on the mustar dressing and salt and pepper, to taste. Yum Yum!
