Warm Bacon Coleslaw
Warm Bacon Coleslaw is a quick and easy side dish that will accompany just about any main dish and now that the cold weather is here. It is nice to serve a warm and comforting dish plus, there’s bacon! This is your favorite coleslaw turned up a notch… or two.
This is my new go-to quick and easy side dish. It comes together in under 20 minutes and is full of flavor. I know that I can keep the ingredients in my kitchen at all times and I can whip this up in no time to go with baked chicken breasts, or juicy piece of beef. The secret is in the dressing because it is cooked in the bacon drippings.
Shredded cabbage and carrots are mixed with crispy bacon all mixed with a warm, honey mustard dressing. I took some help from the grocery store and bought pre-shredded carrots, just to make life easier and the recipe faster.
Bacon is cooked until crisp and drained, bacon drippings saved (of course).
Onions and garlic are sautéed in the bacon drippings (to add more bacon flavor) then apple cider vinegar, yellow mustard, honey, celery seed, salt and pepper are mixed in a bowl. Corn starch is added to help thicken. The liquid is mixed in with the onions and cooked until thick.
The warm dressing is tossed with the cabbage and carrots. This helps warm the vegetables without losing their crispness and the delicious crispy bacon is added and everything is tossed.
You see what I have for you below? It’s the perfect bite…
