ingredients

  • 5 lbs potatoes (baking potatoes are NOT recommended, as they are too flaky)
  • 12 cup diced smoked bacon
  • 12 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar (mild vinegar such as white wine vinegar or herb vinegar)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 34 cup sliced green onion
  • 14 cup chopped chives

directions

  • Place unpeeled potatoes in cold salt water and bring to a boil. Boil gently until potatoes are tender, but still firm. Do not overcook.
  • Pour off the boiling water and allow potatoes to cool until easy to handle. (The drained, unpeeled Potatoes can also be placed in a refrigerator overnight.)
  • Peel cooled potatoes, slice, then place in a large bowl.
  • Slowly sauté the bacon in a skillet until the bacon pieces are crisp and golden brown. Do not drain the fat in the skillet.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and add the oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Pour this mixture over the sliced potatoes in the bowl.
  • Add the green onions and the chives. Gently toss the potatoes so all ingredients are evenly blended. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary.
  • This recipe is excellent served either cold or warm.
