This is a recipe pass down to me from my Mom. This is also called Hot Potato Salad. This is an old German favorite where I grew up in the midwest.

How to Make Old German Style Potato Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Fry bacon until crisp. Remove from grease,and crumble in a bowl. Reserve the bacon grease in fry pan.
  2. Peel and cube 5 pounds of russet potatoes. Boil potatoes until fork tender. Remove from heat and strain in colander. Run under cold water to stop cooking. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl mix vinegar, water, sugar, cornstarch, and salt and pepper. Whisk until well mixed. Pour into warmed bacon grease, bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Lower heat to a simmer and whisk until thickened. Remove from heat.
