Bakin’ With Bacon and King Teddy


Hi Loyal Subjects and Bacon Buddies!  Ready for a new recipe??

This one is absolutely, positively as delicious as it sounds.    It’s also RIDICULOUSLY easy!    I thought it might be something some of you have never had before too and it’s a recipe my Mom says she remembers from when she was a kid living in Alabama.    That was back in the dinosaur age – I didn’t know they ate cole slaw back then but apparently they did!

Anyway, this really is tasty stuff………………you’ve GOTTA try it!

Hot Bacon Cole Slaw


2 bacon slices (or more !!)

1 (16-ounce) package ready-to-eat coleslaw

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

1 ½ tablespoons brown sugar

3 tablespoons water

½ teaspoon seasoned salt

¼ teaspoon ground red pepper


  • Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until crisp; remove bacon from skillet, reserving drippings in skillet. Set bacon aside.

  • Add coleslaw to drippings, and sauté over medium-high heat 3 minutes. Add vinegar and next 4 ingredients (vinegar through red pepper); cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; crumble bacon, and stir into coleslaw mixture. Serve warm.


Well now if that doesn’t sound good what the heck does?!!    This is amazingly yummy with BBQ which is how my Mom used to have it.   She and her family would go to a little roadside shack that had the BEST BBQ and they also had this cole slaw.    DY-NO-MITE (she says – I have to take her word for it because I don’t eat the stuff!!).

Give it a whirl……………….trust me……………..

Oh yeah!  See you next week!

  1. OH, what a memory….mama’s grandmama used to do that but with ham. Bacon is much better! Great idea. Now if we can just find a good cabbage package.


  2. I love coleslaw but usually just use just carrots, onion and white cabbage with mayo. Sometimes I add cooked diced chicken breast when I have some left over.


  3. My husband doesn’t like cabbage. He likes broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts so go figure. They all taste similar. Anyhow, our grocery has a wonderful broccoli slaw that I use to get veggies into him. This would be great with that too.


  4. This sounds wonderful. Wish I could try it. So many problems eating again. Says rain but; haven’t seen anything yet. 59 which feels nice to me. Have a good day.


  5. I love coleslaw but stomach isn’t liking it… gastritis. PSA… Don’t eat Panda Express once a week for a year. It will scorch your stomach lining. This sounds delicious and Jerry would love it and I could sneak a few bites! Excellent dish Teddy!


    • Never had Panda Express but some of the HOT foods are beginning to not agree with me no matter WHERE they’re from! I am though able to eat cabbage from time to time and fortunately trying this out was one of those times it worked out! It’s YUM!!

    • Everyone seems to have their own little “take” on cole slaw but my Mom really likes this combination a lot. It’s a nice thing to have with any kind of BBQ or other sandwich!

      Hugs, Teddy
