Hello Friends! Hope things are good for all of you – all is well in the Baconia Castle kitchen to let’s get to cookin’ !!
It’s entirely possible I’ve given you this next recipe once before – after all – who doesn’t like German potato salad???? Well this of course has a lot of bacon in it so it makes it extra tasty, but over and above that, it’s got that tartness that’s a nice addition AND you serve it warm which is pretty different from the “usual” potato salad. Mom makes this when Dad grills bratwurst out on the BBQ.
Bacon Lovers German Potato Salad
2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
1/2 pound thick-cut bacon
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons minced chives, for garnish
- Place the potatoes in a medium-size pot and cover them with enough water to extend 2 inches above the surface of the potatoes. Salt the water and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Continue cooking until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and slice into 1/4-inch rounds.
- Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once crisp, place on a paper towel-lined plate and crumble into small pieces. Pour off the rendered fat, reserving 1/4 cup in the pan. Turn the heat to medium and add the onion. Cook until translucent and just beginning to brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
- Whisk in the vinegar, sugar, mustard, and salt and stir until thick and bubbly. Add the sliced, cooked potatoes and toss to coat. Top with the crumbled bacon and garnish with the chives. Serve warm.
Now that I’ve given you the recipe – I want some. Well, Mom does anyway and I’m sure Dad would too. Me? I have to settle for my cat food! Oh well………….such is life for the Chef of the Castle Baconia (who just happens to be King!).
Yep – – sure did!!!
Yeah – good advice!
Have a good and safe weekend…..see you next week in the kitchen.
