Bennigans Hot Bacon Dressing Recipe

I’ve never been to Bennigans. Not even sure if we have any in Louisville. But when a reader sent me this dressing, I had to try it. I can’t tell you if it tastes like the original — but I can tell you it’s reeeeeal good!


  • 2 ounces Bacon Grease
  • 1/4 pound Red Onion, diced very fine
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1/2 cup Red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco (optional)


  1. Place the bacon grease in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onions and saute until the onions start to blacken.
  3. While the onions are caramelizing, in a mixing bowl place the water, honey, pepper sauce, and red wine vinegar.
  4. Using a wire whisk, mix the ingredients well.
  5. Add the cornstarch and whisk well.
  6. After the onions have caramelized, add the Dijon mustard to the onions and stir together with a rubber spatula.
  7. Add the water, vinegar, pepper sauce, honey and cornstarch to the mustard and onions and mix.

  8. Continue stirring until mix thickens and comes to a boil.
  9. Remove from heat and store in refrigerator until needed.
  10. To reheat use a double boiler or microwave on low.
