Hot German Potato Salad

This is a recipe that I have had for years. It is very tangy and tasty. Boys love it.

Hot German Potato Salad
1 - 1/2 lb new potatoes, sliced, skins on
1 small onion, chopped
8 strips bacon
3 tbsp flour
1 - 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup vinegar
1 - 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp pepper
celery seeds

Cook potatoes in boiling water for about 20 minutes or until done. Cut bacon into small pieces and fry in a skillet for about 5 minutes. Add onion and continue to cook until the bacon is done and the onion is tender. Incorporate the flour into the bacon and onion until it becomes a thick paste. Add water and stir until thickened. Add vinegar, salt, sugar, and pepper. Sprinkle with celery seeds. Stir in potatoes and blend well.
Yield: 4 servings

Boil the potatoes until done:



While the potatoes are cooking, fry bacon in a skillet for about 5 minutes:

Add onion and continue to cook:

Incorporate flour into the mixture:

Add water and seasonings and stir until thickened:

Stir in potatoes:

This is good served as a main course or as a side dish.

Hi Vickie! I am still coming to your website to check for yummy recipes. I made your Bacon Dip recipe for Emily's birthday party this past weekend! This potato salad recipe looks delicious. I will definitely try it. Ronny does not like traditional potato salad, but I know he will like this. I noticed in the ingredient list vinegar was included, but I didn't see where it went in the recipe. I am retarded when it comes to cooking, but can you tell me what you do with the vinegar? By the way, how are things going at your hospital? It's all the same on my floor!
