"Passed down from my German/Dutch Grandmother. A hot potato salad with bacon, cheese and a creamy/vinegar sauce makes this a wonderful dish to serve with bratwurst on a cold fall day in Deutschland or wherever you might be. I usually double the bacon and sauce to make this extra flavorful." — LizgraEva

Made this for Recipe Group...We loved it! I did boil the potatoes whole before peeling/cubing b/c I don't like how they get when I do it the other way. I wasn't sure what to saute the onions and celery in, so I used some of the bacon grease and that added great flavor. I also reduced the salt a bit, but that was a personal preference. This came together very easily, and, in fact, I made it earlier in the day and just refrigerated it until I was ready to bake it. This was a nice twist on the usual German potato salad, and one that I will be making again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
I halved the recipe but ended up using the full amt of the mayo mixture & mine was still on the dry side, not sure why. I did leave out the celery-not a fan. That being said, it was pretty good. I doubt I'll make it again but it was great to try once!
Recipe Group Selection: 13, October 2012 ~ This is a different type of German Potato Salad than what I grew up on. That being said, different is good. I think I would have preferred to boil the potatoes first, and then cube them. They got a little mushy by cubing then boiling. The sauce mixture was a nice amount for 4 cups of potatoes. I used white cheddar cheese because that is what I had on hand. I think this will be a recipe that the leftovers will be even better than the first time around. My DH wishes I would have sautéed the celery and onions a little longer as he didn't appreciate the crunch in the dish. We both liked this dish and I would make it again. Thanks LizgraEva for sharing your version of Hot German Potato Salad.
Made for Recipe Group 10/13/12. I would suggest cooking the celery mixture a little longer on low. I did not like the little crunch while eating the finished product. It made for a lot of dirty dishes. This did have alot of flavor because of the sauce.
Recipe Group selection of 10/14/12. I used red potatoes, which I boiled and cubed with the skin on. I sauteed my onion and celery in the bacon drippings for added flavor and followed the rest of the recipe as written. I am unsure what the problem is because I like German Potato Salad and I like all the ingredients, but it just didn't work for us. I think we would have liked it better without the mayo, hot or without the cheese, cold. It was interesting to try though, thanks Lizgra!
Made this for Recipe Group and followed directions exactly as written. We all ate a small portion of this, no one wanted seconds. The leftovers also did not re heat well the next day. Thanks for posting something new for us to try; but don't think we will be making again.
Recipe Group. I scaled back to 1/2 recipe and made this for my lunch. I sauteed the onions & celery in some of the bacon grease as suggested by Christina, and I use Miracle Whip instead of mayo (less calories & fat), and only 1/4t salt. This was very easy to put together, and store in the fridge until I was ready to cook. This was a delicious change of pace from the usual sandwiches. Thanks!
I loved this recipe, it will become one of our new household favorites. I just wish it was a little less greasy.
