  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 30 minutes. Drain, cool and slice thin.
  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside, reserving drippings.
  3. Saute onions in bacon drippings until they are golden-brown.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, celery seed, and pepper. Add to the sauteed onions and cook and stir until bubbly, then remove from heat. Stir in water and vinegar, then return to the stove and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil and stir for one minute. Carefully stir bacon and sliced potatoes into the vinegar/water mixture, stirring gently until potatoes are heated through.

This was a very good patato salad. I've never tried it hot before. Just a suggestion...use red potatoes because they don't fall apart as easily as brown potatoes. It still tastes good when the potatoes are crumbled put if you're looking for presentation points I'd use red!!

Super!!!! I am just getting around to rating this and thank you submitter. I have served this many, many times and there is never enough. Currently it's my favorite item to bring to parties. I do add more bacon (because we love bacon) and I make more sauce than called for but no one can go wrong with your directions. Thanks again.

awesome in tummy

My dad was saying it's been years since he had German potato salad and he really missed it,so I thought I would try my hand at this and surprise him. Wow! Was it good! I boiled my potatoes with skin on,and peeled and sliced when they cooled down a bit(much easier.) I used less potatoes than called for, 8oz. package of bacon,3/4 cup onion and doubled the rest. I like lots of sauce so I gradually added my potatoes to my liking,you can use leftovers for hash browns. Thanks Tequila!
