The ingredients for this recipe are a little tricky nutritionally because the cooked bacon is not consumed. For this reason the ingredients listed include butter - PLEASE DO NOT ADD BUTTER TO THIS RECIPE. You will need 6 pieces of bacon to make this recipe. Remove the bacon after cooking and keep in the refrigerator for another use unless the recipe specifies using the cooked bacon. For example, Shrimp on mixed greens with bacon and Hot Bacon Vinaigrette. Be sure to use low or no-carb sherry vinegar. Pay attention to the label. Each serving for this recipe is 2 Tbsp, makes 3/4 cup.
