In large skillet, fry bacon on medium-high until crisp; remove and crumble when cooled.

Pan-fry onion on medium heat in bacon grease for 4-5 minutes, just until they begin to brown. With a slotted spoon, transfer onions to a plate. 

To the same skillet, add vinegar, water, sugar, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Turn off heat. Add potatoes, onions and 1/2 the bacon. Stir to mix. Transfer to serving dish. Sprinkle remaining bacon on top. Serve warm.
