1 kg baby chat potatoes, washed and halved
5 rashers of bacon, rind removed

A classic potato salad is welcome at any party. It’s easy to prepare with FullSteam and can be made in advance. Making the mayonnaise will have everybody asking for the recipe. Cooking the egg yolk makes the mayonnaise better for hot weather and picnics.


Place egg in the perforated stainless steel tray and place in FullSteam oven. Select Steam Programs > Speciality Dishes > Soft Boiled Egg and press start. Allow egg to cool for 5 minutes.

Place potatoes on the large perforated stainless steel tray and place in FullSteam Oven. Select Steam 100⁰C and cook for 20 minutes or until cooked. Rinse potatoes with cold water and allow to drain and cool.

In a bowl of a small food processor add the mustard, lemon juice and water. Carefully remove the shell from the egg and place only the egg yolk into the food processor bowl. Blend to combine and with the motor running slowly add the oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Preheat oven on Grill, large area to 250⁰C. If using the FullSteam oven, wipe oven interior to remove excess water. Place wire rack on the enamel tray and grill bacon until golden and crisp, cooking on both sides. Allow bacon to cool on paper towel.

In a large serving bowl add the shallot, herbs, cornichons, capers and potatoes. Dress with as much of the mayonnaise as you like and stir until well combined. Roughly chop bacon and top salad.
