- 3 pounds Yukon Gold Potatoes or Red Bliss Potatoes
- 8 slices bacon
- 2 cups sliced onions
- 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 bunch scallions chopped green and white parts
Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Turn on heat to high and bring to a simmer.
Turn down to medium low and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Strain and let cool to room temperature.
In the mean time, cut bacon into 1-2 inch pieces and place in a small pot and place over medium heat. Cook to start rendering and add the onions. Cook over medium heat for 7 minutes or until onions lightly caramelized.
Now add the vinegar to the pot and reduce by half. Add the sugar and salt and set aside.
Next, cut the potatoes into 1-2 inch pieces and place in a large bowl. Toss the bacon and onion mixture with the potatoes and mix well.
Mix in the scallions and taste. Adjust seasoning with salt and sugar.
