Hot German Potato Salad Casserole

Hot German Potato Salad Casserole

LizgraEva 1

"Passed down from my German/Dutch Grandmother. A hot potato salad with bacon, cheese and a creamy/vinegar sauce makes this a wonderful dish to serve with bratwurst on a cold fall day in Deutschland or wherever you might be. I usually double the bacon and sauce to make this extra flavorful."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  5. Whisk mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt, and black pepper in a bowl until smooth. Pour mixture over potatoes and stir until well mixed. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until cheese is melted, 20 to 35 minutes.

I halved the recipe but ended up using the full amt of the mayo mixture & mine was still on the dry side, not sure why. I did leave out the celery-not a fan. That being said, it was pretty good....

I loved this recipe, it will become one of our new household favorites. I just wish it was a little less greasy.

Recipe Group. I scaled back to 1/2 recipe and made this for my lunch. I sauteed the onions & celery in some of the bacon grease as suggested by Christina, and I use Miracle Whip instead of mayo ...
