Hot Bacon and Cherry Hot Bacon Dressings made in Door County

“We have been serving our homemade Hot Bacon Dressing on our spinach salads since we opened in 2005,” says Chef Randy. “It was loved by so many people who wanted to take some home with them that we started sending it out with our guests in plastic containers.”

The continual requests coming from dining room patrons that wanted to give the dressing to friends as a gift or simply to take south with them for the winter convinced everyone to start bottling it and putting a proper label on the outside.

“Randy has always made it himself,” explains a staff member. “He started with a few different base recipes that he continually tweaked until he came up with our own English Inn recipe. Its’ one of the few recipes he does not give out.”

The bottling process started in the winter of 2008. Randy and Toni Stich went to the Algoma Certified Shared Kitchen to get The English Inn’s kitchen certified for commercial canning and bottling and to learn the process. They obtained all the licensing and permits required to begin bottling by spring of 2008.

Now you can buy16 oz.  jars of dressing at The English Inn or you can call 920.868.3076 to place an order by phone. They ship anywhere in the United States through US Postal Service at whatever rate the post office charges to send to your location.

This year they added a second variety, Cherry Hot Bacon Dressing since everyone in Door County loves things made with cherries. A 16 oz. container of Hot Bacon Dressing costs $8.95  and  the same size of  Cherry Hot Bacon sells for $9.50.

Along with their own in-house favorite uses for the dressings like on spinach salad, some of the English Inn patrons have shared their favorite ways to use them, including as a basting sauce for chicken or ham, in German potato salad and as a dipping sauce for snacks.

    The best spinach salad I’ve ever had! I was tempted to lick my plate! I brought some home today & I will be having another spinach salad for lunch tomorrow. Basting chicken with it sounds like a good idea too.

    Plate-licking is actually encouraged at The English Inn… happy to see you so happy indeed!

    Had the spinach salad and then dreamed about it for the rest of the week. It was wonderful. Had to order dressing to ease the longing of wanting more salad.

    Discreetly, I did lick my plate! Best spinach salad we ever had. Bought one jar to bring home-equally as good. On line now to place order for more. We will be returning for another fantastic dining experience next year when time permits.
