  • 2-3 pounds russet potatoes, scrubbed and halved
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 sweet or yellow onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1/2 tablespoon flour
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • parsley optional


  • Place potatoes in a Dutch oven or large pot and cover with water. (Do not peel them.) Bring water to a boil, reduce heat to maintain a simmer and boil 20 minutes, or until just tender all the way through. Drain potatoes, let cool, and peel skin off. Slice potatoes into bite-sized pieces.
  • Dice bacon and place into a nonstick skillet. Cook over medium-heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Discard all but about 2 tablespoons bacon fat.
  • Add onion and celery to bacon fat and cook until soft.
  • While onion is cooking, combine vinegar, SPLENDA® Sweetener, chicken broth, salt, mustard, and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Once onion and celery are softened, sprinkle flour over them and cook 1 minute.
  • Stir in chicken broth mixture and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add potatoes to pan and stir to mix everything together. Check for seasoning and add more salt and pepper if needed.
  • Sprinkle with bacon and parsley just before serving. Best served warm or at room temperature.


I like to boil the potatoes with the skins on and then peel them after they are cooked. I think this helps prevent the potatoes from becoming waterlogged. If your potatoes are small, you can cook them whole.
Add more cider vinegar or more SPLENDA® Sweetener to create the right balance of sweet and sour to suit your personal taste.
