German Potato Salad
There is always someone in the crowd that doesn't like some food served, but I have yet to find one that doesn't like this dish.
How to Make German Potato Salad
- Cook/boil potatoes (about 8 medium size or adjust for the size of you potatoes) until fork tender. Cool, peel and slice. Fry bacon and crumble. Save grease.
- In a casserole, layer with some of the potato slices. Salt and pepper the layer, then spread with some bacon crumbs and sprinkle/drip with bacon grease. Repeat until you've used all the potatoes and bacon. Set aside.
- In a sauce pan, mix together sugar and flour, then add vinegar and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until mixture thickens. Spoon or pour the sauce over the layers.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
If you use 12 to 14 potatoes increase the bacon crumbs and for the sauce use 1/2 cup measures for the sugar, vinegar and water. The flour should be increased to 1 1/2 tbsp.
This can be made ahead and stored, covered, in the refrigerator for a couple of days. Then bake when needed.
