Ingredients
  • 2 lbs. small red potatoes, halved
  • Kosher salt
  • 6 strips of hickory smoked bacon, cut into ½” pieces
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 2 T. fresh chopped fresh thyme

  • 1 T. butter
  • 1 T. creole mustard
  • ⅓ c. finely chopped fresh chives

  • 2 T. finely chopped parsley
  • Black pepper

Instructions
  1. Place potatoes in cold water and season with salt. Bring to boil, reduce heat and cook until tender.
  2. Place bacon in skillet and add olive oil and thyme. Saute until bacon and thyme are crisp. Once bacon has rendered some of fat, add onions and cook until soft.
  3. Add vinegar, butter and mustard.
  4. Drain potatoes and immediately add to skillet.
  5. Stir to coat the potatoes. Taste for seasoning.

Notes
*****Important to add potatoes while hot. They tend to absorb the flavors of vinaigrette better.
