Preparation
STEP 1

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Add 2 tablespoons salt. Bring to a boil and then simmer uncovered until potatoes are just fork tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for about 10 minutes.

STEP 2

Cut bacon into 1/4-inch pieces and fry in a pan until crispy. Remove bacon, leaving the fat in the pan. Add onion to pan and cook until translucent. Add flour and whisk for one minute. Add sugar, mustard, water, vinegar, remaining salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Boil for one minute, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

STEP 3

Cut cooked potatoes into thick slices and place in a large bowl. Add cooked bacon and warm sauce and stir gently to coat. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt or pepper.

STEP 4

Garnish with chopped parsley or chives and serve warm or at room temperature.
