This sweet & tangy side dish is a Schuldt family tradition. Keep cool on hot summer days with this microwave technique for preparing this delicious warm side perfect for barbeque!
Wash and pierce potatoes. Cook on paper towels in the microwave oven 15-18 minutes or until tender. Let cool slightly and cut in 1/8-inch slices.
Meanwhile, cut bacon in small pieces. Put in a microwave-safe 2-quart casserole dish. Cover with a paper towel and cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring after 3 minutes. When bacon is crisp, remove it from the dish with a slotted spoon. Crumble and set aside.
Stir flour and seasonings into the remaining bacon fat in the casserole. Mix until smooth. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes until bubbly, stirring after 1 minute.
Add water and vinegar to the flour mixture. Stir to combine. Return to the microwave oven and bring to a boil (about 2 minutes) stirring after 1 minute.
Remove sauce from oven and stir smooth. Add potatoes and bacon; stir gently so potatoes hold shape.
Cover and let stand until ready to serve.
