Bacon? Really can any recipe that includes bacon be wrong? This recipe comes to you from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, 75th edition. I wasn't pleased with the Ruralite recipe and have tried others...this one is yummy. Moist, has that bacon element, and a mustard taste too.
1 1/2 lbs red potatoes, boil until almost soft about 30 minutes
4 slices of bacon, fried crisp and chopped (I am in an organic stage and use only organic bacon)
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1 TBSP flour
1 TBSP sugar
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp. celery seeds
1/2 tsp. hearty mustard
dash of good black pepper
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
Boil potatoes until almost soft. Peel and cut into a 1/2" dice. For the dressing: Cook bacon until crisp. Crumble bacon and reserve oil.
Add onion to the bacon fat and soften (about 5 minutes). Stir in the flour, sugar, salt, celery seeds, mustard and pepper. Now stir in the water and vinegar and allow to thicken...you may want to add a little more water if needed. Add potatoes and bacon...Cook for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.
I'm serving this tonight with charcoal grilled Moose Brats and some of our 2011 saurkraut!
