Hot German Potato Salad


I love this sweet/tangy potato salad that goes well with just about anything. It can be eaten cool, however, you'd have to change the name, so why even bother?

I just made it this afternoon to serve with some pork chops. It had been awhile since I made this recipe-the recipe card actually fell out of one of the cookbooks I was getting ready to read, so I took it as a "sign"!

Ummmm...it just hit the spot! (Score one for the "signs"!)

It looks a bit "soupy" cuz...it is. I only had about 4 cups potatoes but we love the sauce so I didn't adjust the recipe. Yours will not be as soupy if you use the proper amount of potatoes.

So, here ya' go:

YOU WILL NEED:
5 slices bacon
3/4 cup. onion, chopped
2 T. flour
2/3 c. apple cider vinegar
1 1/3 c. water
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
6 c/ sliced, cooked potatoes

DIRECTIONS:
Fry bacon till crisp and remove from skillet- drain on paper towels and reserve 2-3 T. drippings. Cook onions in dripping till tender. Stir in flour;blend well. Add vinegar and water;cook, stirring until bubbly and slightly thick. Stir in sugar, salt and pepper; simmer 10 minutes. Crumble bacon and add to hot mixture, then carefully pour over potatoes. Coat well.

*Can refrigerate leftovers. Use double boiler to heat through when reheating.
