I made some delicious Hot German Potato Salad to go with our roast pork tonight. I forgot to take a picture, I’ll get a picture when we have the leftovers 🙂 We really enjoyed it, I don’t know why I don’t make it more often?
Hot German Potato Salad
about 1 1/2 lbs of potatoes
3 slices bacon
1/3 c onion(I used chives this time)
1 T corn starch
1 T sugar
1 t salt
pinch of celery seed
1/2 c water
1/4 c vinegar
Now, traditionally the potatoes should be cooked in their skins and then sliced. I don’t like handling hot potatoes (and ours are really old this time of year) so I peeled them and cubed them (cubes are sturdier than rounds). Boil potatoes until tender.
Meanwhile, fry bacon until crisp. Remove and chop for later. If using raw onions (I usually use dried) saute in bacon fat until soft. Into bacon yumminess (aka fat) stir in cornstarch, salt, celery, and sugar. Add a little butter if the bacon didn’t render enough. Carefully pour in water and vinegar (keep face away from pot). Stir until thick.
Drain potatoes, peel and slice if necessary. Pour potatoes into sauce, add bacon and stir gently to coat. Yum!
