Hot German Potato Salad

I found this recipe some time ago and found it to be very good. My problem is, I can't for the life of me figure out what part "German" has to do with it. It's a good salad. Period.


  • 9 Medium sized red potatoes, scrubbed (About 4 1/2 Lbs)

  • 6 Slices of bacon

  • 1 medium onion (chopped)

  • 2 Tbsp. flour

  • 2 Tbsp. sugar

  • 2-3 Tsp. salt

  • 1/8 tsp. pepper

  • 1/2 tsp. celery seed

  • 3/4 cup water

  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

Boil potatoes in enough water to cover until tender (25-30 mins.).

Drain and cool for 10 mins.

Cut potatoes into 1/2 inch thick slices and set aside.

Fry bacon in large skillet. Crumble and set aside.

Cook onion in bacon drippings, stirring until tender. Add flour and the next 4 ingredients, stirring until blended.

Cook for 1 minute over medium heat, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in 3/4 cup water and vinegar, cooking until sauce has thickened and bubbly.

Layer 1/3 of potato and bacon in a 2 1/2 quart serving bowl, drizzle with 1/3 of sauce mixture. Repeat procedure 2 more times and serve.
