Dandelion with Sour Sauce

If a change in the cooking of dandelion is desired, it should be prepared with a sour sauce. This method of preparation is very popular, for besides increasing the food value of this variety of greens, it improves the flavor very much.

Sufficient to serve six.


  • 1/2 package dandelion
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 4 thin slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Clean and wash the dandelion. Cut the slices of bacon into small pieces and sauté until crisp. Stir the flour and salt into the bacon fat, add the vinegar and water, and stir until the flour thickens. Add the beaten egg last, and remove from the fire. Put the dandelion into the pan and mix well with the hot sauce. If the dandelion is preferred well wilted, set the pan over the flame, and stir until the dandelion appears as desired. Serve hot.
