  • Toss potatoes, oil, rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pep per in the pan. Arrange cut-side down; roast for 10 minutes.

Off the heat, whisk vinegar, mustard and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper into the drippings in the pan, scraping up any browned bits.

  • Drizzle the apples and vegetables with the dressing, sprinkle with bacon and stir to coat. Serve hot or room temperature.

The perfect winter potato salad Didn't have a stoneground mustard so used Dijon. It was perfect. Great fall or autumn side with burgers pork chicken...anything! Pros: Great aroma while cooking. Easy one pan process. Appealed to my crowd of mixed ages. Cons: Recipe says 10 servings...we had just enough & I actually used more potatoes than was called for. Read More

Too much vinegar I made the dressing as directed but it seemed that the vinegar was too much - it overpowered everything else especially the bacon! Next time I'm going to double the bacon and halve the vinegar - there's some in the mustard as well and overall it was too strong. Pros: Easy to make Nice change from the usual Cons: Vinegar was too strong Read More
