Low Cholesterol, Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


8 slices bacon
3 pound potatoes
peeled and sliced or diced
1 small onions
finely chopped
¾ cup mayonnaise
or sour cream
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ cup bacon drippings
cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons parsley leaves
finely chopped
½ teaspoon salt
black pepper
fresh ground, to taste


Cook the bacon slices until almost crisp. Remove to a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Reserve ¼ cup of the drippings. Once cooled finely slice the bacon.

Boil the potatoes in a large pot of water. Cook until tender but still firm (do not overcook) this will take about 12 to 15 minutes.

In a large bowl, mix together the onions, mayonnaise, garlic powder, bacon drippings, vinegar, sugar, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Pour over the potatoes and gently mix to avoid breaking up the potatoes too much. Sprinkle the cooked bacon on top.

Let stand at room temperature for 1 or more before serving to allow the flavors to blend.
