This tangy-sweet dressing is perfect for large gatherings. Keep it warm in a crockpot or slow-cooker. I like serving it over dandelion or spinach salad, and I also like it mixed in with mashed potatoes. Just a little gives a lot of flavor. —Victoria Hahn Northampton, Pennsylvania


  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Torn fresh spinach, sliced fresh mushrooms and salad croutons
  • 1 package (1 pound) sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Gradually stir in water and vinegar. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.
  2. Stir a small amount of hot dressing into eggs; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat.
  3. Serve immediately over spinach with mushrooms and croutons; sprinkle with bacon. Or transfer dressing to a 1-1/2-qt. slow cooker and keep warm on low. Refrigerate leftovers.
