Add vinegar, sugar, flour, water, salt and pepper. Add the egg mixture to the reserved drippings in the skillet. Cook over low heat stirring constantly, bring to rolling boil. Take off heat when it has reached desired consistency. When cool, fold in crumbled bacon and serve over your favorite salad.

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition.
Blessings and Happy Easter!!
