Ingredients

  • 3 pounds red potatoes (about 8 medium)
  • 1 pound bacon strips, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • Minced fresh chives, optional

Directions

Place potatoes in a 6-qt. stockpot; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, just until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain; cool slightly.
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon to paper towels, reserving 3 tablespoons drippings.
For dressing, saute onion in drippings over medium-high heat until tender, 4-6 minutes. Stir in flour until blended. Stir in sugars, salt and pepper. Gradually stir in vinegar and water; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until slightly thickened, 4-6 minutes.
Slice potatoes; place in a greased 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. Top with dressing; sprinkle with bacon. Cook, covered, on low until heated through, 3-4 hours. If desired, sprinkle with chives. Yield: 12 servings
