“My Grandparents used to make this for us when we were children. The addition of escarole adds a great flavor to the bacon, potatoes and eggs.”

This recipe is very tasty. A very good potato salad to try away from the normal version.



I like the idea of adding escarole (as in wilted green salads) but this recipe seems to have several ingredients missing- onion, sugar. It was very vinegary. I ended up making a more tradtional dressing and tossed with the bacon-potato-vinegar mixture to salvage the dish.



Awesome!.. I didn't have a lb of bacon, although I probably would have cut that in half... I used what I had which was about 3 slices,next time I'll use more. I also didn't have escarole, so I sliced up celery and added it to the hot bacon to cook a little towards the end. I also added salt, pepper and a little paprika for the top.. The flavors of egg, bacon, celery combined with the vinegar were delicious!.. The vinegar mellowed as it sat for a while... I will make this again!
