Bacon lovers German Potato Salad

Category: Potatoes, Salads, Side Dishes

 Ingredients List

  • 4 cups diced red potatoes
  • ½ to 1 pound of bacon
  • 1 small yellow or white onion
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar (may substitute white vinegar)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (or 2 teaspoons parsley flakes)


Peel and dice the potatoes into bite sized pieces.
Place the potatoes into a pot and fill with enough water to cover.
Bring to a boil and cook for 8 - 10 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork but firm enough to not fall apart. Drain, return to pot and set aside.
Use a pair of kitchen scissors or a knife and cut the bacon crosswise into small pieces.
Place the bacon pieces in a large deep skillet over a medium-high heat. Fry until browned and crisp, stirring to separate the pieces as they cook.
Remove the bacon from the pan and set aside.
Finely chop or julienne the onion and add the onion to the warm bacon grease in the skillet. (You may remove part of the bacon grease if needed, since only about 1/4 cup is necessary.) Cook over medium heat until browned.
Add the vinegar, water, sugar, salt and pepper to the skillet and stir as you bring the mixture to a boil.
Turn off the burner, crumble in half of the bacon and stir in the parsley to the dressing.
Pour the dressing over the potatoes and stir well while heating over medium heat. Finally, transfer the salad to a serving dish and crumble the rest of the bacon over top.
