This Hot German potato salad is loaded with crispy bacon and it’s more on the vinegar side than the creamy side, and we love it!
Do you love potato salad? How about crispy bacon? Then you’re in luck! This Hot German potato salad recipe is an old favorite recipe…an oldie but a goodie, one that we keep coming back to. You can serve it warm as a side dish with dinner, or chilled at a BBQ.
I LOVE this recipe for Hot German Potato Salad. I’m not sure if it’s the vinegar or the bacon, but both make this one of my favorite things to eat whether hot or cold straight out of the fridge. Yum!
Hot German Potato Salad
Hot german potato salad with a delicious vinegar sauce and loaded with crispy bacon. We love it both served hot and cold.
- 6 red potatoes sliced and boiled
- 6 pieces bacon cooked
- 3/4 Cup onion chopped and sauteed in bacon fat
- 2 Tbs. flour
- 1 Tbs. sugar
- 1/2 tsp celery seed
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt +a dash of pepper
- 3/4 Cup water

Boil the sliced potatoes.
Cook the bacon. Drain off most all of the bacon fat.
Saute the onions in the pan you cooked the bacon.
Add the flour, sugar, celery seed, salt and pepper. Gradually stir in the water and vinegar. Cook it until it boils.
Pour this over the potatoes. Add the bacon crumbles at the end. (Don't overcook the potatoes.)
You can make this in the morning and heat it later before serving.
You can use any potatoes you'd like: russets, red or yellow.
