The creamy consistency of this sauce comes from Thick It Up™ by Dixie Diners' Club™. It contains 0 grams of Net Carbs per serving (it's all fiber) and can be ordered online. In a pinch you can substitute xanthan or guar gum or a combination of the two.
- In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp, 6-8 minutes. Remove, reserving drippings, and drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon.
- Dice onion and add to bacon fat in saucepan. Cook 3 minutes, until onion just begins to brown. Add mustard, pepper and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low.
- Whisk thickener into the water until it is dissolved and no clumps remain. Whisk into the saucepan; add cream, cheese and paprika; stir until cheese is melted.
- This sauce is a delicious topping for any vegetable or protein. You can also use it as a dip with vegetables such as celery, or zucchini spears. Each serving is about ¼ cup.
Bacon crumbles easier after it has cooled. Don't skip the thickener, it helps to bind the ingredients together.
