Potato salad with bacon and egg vinaigrette


Bacon and egg is one of the perfect flavour marriages. Here they're turned into a tasty vinaigrette, where the bacon fat adds a certain something to this super-simple spud salad.

You'll need

500 gm chat potatoes, unpeeled, halved 3 waxy potatoes, such as Desiree, thickly sliced ½ small Spanish onion, thinly sliced 90 ml red wine vinegar 4 eggs, at room temperature 80 ml (1/3 cup) olive oil 140 gm speck, cut into lardons 1 garlic clove, finely chopped To serve: coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Method

  • 01
  • Combine chat potatoes in a saucepan with enough cold salted water to cover generously, bring to the boil over medium-high heat and cook until tender when pierced with a skewer or sharp knife (15-20 minutes), then drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  • 02
  • Combine Desiree potatoes in a separate saucepan with enough cold salted water to cover generously, bring to the boil over medium-high heat and cook until tender when pierced with a skewer or the tip of a sharp knife (10-15 minutes), drain and add to chat potatoes. Add onion, drizzle with 2 tbsp vinegar, season to taste and set aside to cool.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, cook eggs in a saucepan of boiling water until cooked to your liking (7-8 minutes for medium yolks), drain, cool under cold running water, then peel and set aside. Coarsely crumble half the egg (reserve remainder) into the potato mixture and set aside.
  • 04
  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add speck and fry until crisp (4-5 minutes), then stir in garlic, remove from heat and set aside. Once cool, stir in remaining vinegar, crumble in remaining egg, add to potatoes and toss to combine. Scatter with parsley and serve.
