"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!
Fantastic! I added Kalamata olives, celery, and onion to the recipe - and it was a knock-out!
Yum....This is Authentic. Great combination of flavors.I think the escarole adds a good balance to the vinegar. Thanks for posting Karen!!
I like the idea of no sweetener and with all that bacon I know why no salt was used. But for health reasons, I had to replace the drippings (with all the saturated fats) with olive (or other healthy) oil I had on hand. I might try to swap the low sodium bacon for low sodium ham or turkey in the future.
