A large part of my family is German but I have never had German potato salad so I thought I would give it a try.
This recipe serves one! First thing you gotta do is get the potatoes in a pan of water and put it on high. Then we gather our ingredients.
2 yellow potatoes or red potatoes will work for this.
Slice them up, but not too thin, you don't want chips.
Dice up some onion, or use what you have already diced as I did. I tend to dice an onion on Sunday to use throughout the week.
Celery Seed. This is one of my favorite spices.
I pre-measure everything so it is ready to add once I start cooking.
After all of this prep your potatoes should be done.
drain the potatoes and set them aside.
Believe it or not only one burner of my stove works well, so I have to spread stuff out and it often takes longer to cook meals. If you have two working burners you can start your bacon while you are prepping.
Once the bacon is cooked, remove it and throw in your onions. Once those have softened it is time to add the flour.
Stir the flour amongst the onions. This will act as a thickener after you add the liquid.
Add in the broth and stir until it thickens.
Grab your bacon and potatoes and get those in the pan with the rest of your ingredients.
Give it all a stir to combine and you are ready to eat!
The Germans really know how to make a great salad. You want to serve this warm so it may not be the perfect summer salad, but fall is just around the corner!
I served it with a nice hot dog and it was the perfect lunch. The hubby tasted this and said that if it was just totally covered in bacon it would be a lot better. Ah well, at least he tasted it!
