The last day of Bacon Month - Potato Salad

Yum
If you've just noticed, me and a whole bunch of bloggers (wrangled together by Julie of Bread Booze Bacon) made bacon recipes ALL MONTH!



For the LAST DAY of Bacon Month, I wanted to challenge myself. I set lofty goals. I was going to make a maple bacon Dutch baby. Fluffy, eggy, sweet and savory goodness.

Then why do I have friggin potato salad?

Because life had other plans. Note to self: taking on hefty blog projects when one has multiple improv shows a week is a recipe for failure. I burnt no fewer than FIVE Dutch baby pancakes. Two because I literally LEFT THE HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF MAKING THEM, two because I had my measurements off, and one because I fell asleep. And then, homegirl was out of eggs.


So, here you have something totally different and hopefully not too underwhelming. A potato salad with amped up bacon. Yes, I had made it beforehand for dinner. But it DOES include delicious bacon, and we all know bacon and potatoes is a match made in heaven.

Dijon mustard. Friends: I am never making potato salad without it again.

Check out the last day of Bacon Month's recipes!!

Bacony Potato Salad
1 lb red potatoes, cut into bite-sized cubes
5 slices bacon, crumbled
1 small red onion, diced
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp dried chives
1 tbsp chives
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp sugar

-In a pot of salted water, boil the potatoes until done and easily pierced with a fork--about 20 minutes. Drain and let cool to room temp.

-While potatoes are boiling, cook the onions and bacon together until bacon is to desired done-ness (I like mine a bit chewy). Drain well and set aside.

-In a small bowl, whisk together all other ingredients. When potatoes are cool, gently toss with the mixture and sprinkle in the onions and bacon.

-Serve with extra bacon. Because bacon.

  2. One of the provocative theories, suggested by Michael Wood, is that Shakespeare's most severe separation anxiety, in response to the possibility of his parting with the Young Man has its roots in his parental grief: the boy-lover is a transmutation of the dead son, adolescent and now, lost.

  3. Given that Ben was only 39 when he wrote this letter, he seems to have already amassed considerable mistress experience, getting an early start by fathering a son out of wedlock when he was 24. His presumably-long-suffering wife raised the child in her own home.
