"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Ingredients:  
6 - 8 red potatoes, boil in jackets until tender, peel and dice
1 large sweet onion, (Vidalia, Texas), peel and dice

1 cup sugar

Directions:
Directions:
In large skillet (I use cast iron) dice and fry the bacon until tender, remove bacon to paper towel and let drain. Reserve 2 T. of bacon drippings to saute the onions until tender; add sugar, flour and vinegar, cook until sugar has dissolved and sauce has thickened. You can check tastes at this point, if to "vinegary", add a few T. of sugar until you feel it is okay, then add the potatoes, eggs and bacon, let simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn't stick. Serve hot, enjoy.
