Well, I have found an alternative.
3 large POTATOES (peeled and cut in to chunks)
150gms BACON (also diced)
150gms SOUR CREAM
Boil the prepared potatoes until cooked, but still firm. While these are cooking, fry the onion until it is clear then toss in the bacon, flipping and turning until the bacon is cooked. 2 or 3 minutes. Drain the potatoes and leave in the saucepan. Add the bacon and onion mix and lightly mix together. Stir in the sour cream. Do all this while it is still warmish, as it is easier. Transfer to a nice serving bowl. Now all the messy stuff is in the saucepan, ready to be washed up.
Enjoy, we did tonight with a green leaf salad and tinned beetroot.
