  • 8 slices bacon
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup bacon fat
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp Lakanto Monkfruit Golden
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup red vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • salt to taste


  • Chop the bacon, then saute it in a skillet until very crisp. 
  • Remove the bacon from the grease and set it aside on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb excess oil so that it continues to crisp. Once it has cooled to the touch, crumble into smaller pieces. 
  • Keep 1/3 cup of the bacon grease in the skillet and remove the rest if there is any excess. It should render approx 1/3 cup. 
  • Add the fresh minced garlic and chopped onion to the skillet and saute in the bacon grease until the onion is translucent. 
  • Add all of the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Boil uncovered for 5 minutes or until the Low Carb Hot Bacon Dressing reduces stirring with a whisk to avoid sticking to the pan. 
  • Remove from heat, add the crumbled bacon to the dressing, and stir until thoroughly combined. 
  • To serve after being refrigerated, you will need to rewarm and add additional water since the bacon grease will become firm in the fridge.
