Boiled Dressing


  1. Salad: Cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove and crumble. Drain off all fat except 1 tablespoon, return to medium heat, add onions and celery.

Pour over the potatoes in a large bowl. Add the parsley and chives. Mix well to blend flavors. Add more cream if desired, taste, add salt if desired.
  3. Sprinkle crumbled bacon on top and garnish with the sliced hard-boiled eggs.
  4. Boiled Dressing: Combine sugar, salt, and mustard in the top of a double boiler. Add vinegar. Stir to combine.
  5. Add well-beaten eggs. Place over moderately boiling water. Stir until the mixture is creamy about the consistency of custard.
  6. Beat in the butter. Cool.

This dressing may be stored, covered, in the refrigerator, and will keep up to two weeks.
