1 1/2 cups sliced celery
4 (1/3 cup) slices cooked bacon, chopped
3/4 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 Land O Lakes® Eggs, hard-cooked, chopped


Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add potatoes. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and tender. Remove potatoes from skillet; place into bowl.  Add celery and bacon; toss lightly.

Melt remaining butter in same skillet until sizzling; add onion. Cook over medium heat 1-2 minutes or until onion is softened.

Combine flour, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper in bowl. Stir flour mixture into onion mixture; stir in water and vinegar. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, 2-3 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking 1 minute. Pour onion mixture over potato mixture; toss to coat.

Spoon potato salad onto individual serving plates; sprinkle with parsley and chopped egg.

Recipe Tip

- Round white potatoes are commonly referred to as boiling potatoes. This kind of potato contains less starch and more moisture than a baking potato such as russets.

- Potatoes will keep successfully for several weeks if stored in a cool, dark, humid (but not wet) place. Avoid light because it greens the skin giving potatoes a bitter flavor. Also, don’t keep potatoes in the refrigerator. Cold converts potato starch to sugar, sweetening them.
