Ingredients

  • 12 medium potatoes
  • 12 bacon strips
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • Pinch pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup white vinegar
  • Chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain. Peel and slice into a large bowl; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon to paper towels; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings.
