Directions:
Fry the bacon in a heavy pan until crisp; remove from the heat. Mix the water and vinegar together and add to the bacon; set aside. In a bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Add the flour, sugar, dry mustard and salt; beat until well-mixed. In a medium saucepan, heat the bacon-vinegar mixture until it is almost boiling. Slowly add the egg mixture, stirring constantly until it starts to boil and thicken. Remove from heat and pour over the potatoes; mix well. Top with sliced onions, if desired. Sprinkle with paprika. Refrigerate for at least 12 hours. Note: It always seems to taste better the next day.
