    1. Just made this for lunch… YUMMY! I poached the eggs rather than frying them, and I didn’t have fresh basil (husband forgot at the grocery store) so I put in a teaspoon of some pesto I had on hand.
      For the dressing I used 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease and one tablespoon EVOO. I had a large lemon, so I think it was heavy on the lemon juice (which I will reduce next time).
      Overall- my meal was WAY better than I expected it to be! delicious!!

      1. That’s such a creative substitute, Leah! Love it! Admittedly, I didn’t measure my lemon juice so it may have been a little low on the juice side of things (plus I tend to like sour things). That’s so good to hear…I appreciate that you took the time to write in :)
