This is the best German Potato Salad recipe. I made a few changes on a recipe originally given to me by my next door neighbor, when I was planning an Octoberfest party. It is a hit every time I serve it!

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two; cut into 1/2-inch pieces and place into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, stir the bacon and onion together in a large skillet over medium heat until the fat has rendered from the bacon and the onion is very tender but not brown, about 15 minutes. Stir in the flour, sugar, and salt; cook for 1 minute. Pour in the vinegar; bring to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour the dressing over the potatoes and sprinkle with celery seed and parsley. Stir gently to combine. Serve hot.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This is similar to a recipe my grandmother used. She added chopped celery in place of the parsley and a cup or two of heated drained sauerkraut. She also browned the bacon before adding flour and the vinegar. The sauerkraut makes all the diference in the taste.

So spouse doesn't liky mayo, and wanted a more vinegar potato salad. This didn't look too difficult, and it had good reviews...it was YUMMY and a big hit at the cook out! The "sauce" cooked a whole lot faster than what the recipe said...after putting in the vinegar, and it thickened right up. One warning...this is not a low-cal recipe, but the taste is well worth the calories!

This tastes wonderful but I can't see using all the bacon grease in this recipe I would like to try it with less fat.
