German Potato Casserole Recipe

I bring this dish to an annual Oktoberfest party. Everyone likes it, which ensures our invitation back year after year. There are never any leftovers to bring home. -Dara Luburgh, Sparta, New Jersey
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:16-20 servings


  • 5 pounds red potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, diced
  • 8 hard-cooked large eggs, chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound process cheese (Velveeta), cubed


  • 1. Place potatoes in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  • 2. In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings.

"I have used this recipe twice for Octoberfest parties. Very good! Plan to make it again this year. I use cheddar cheese only, not Velveeta."

"We are from San Antonio which has a lot of German influance in and around surrounding areas. Was given this recipe a few years ago and tried it out for Thanksgiving. It was a hit. Needles to say I had lost the recipe and hubby was asking for me to cook it. So TG I found it here. Printing and saving. Never losing again. Absolute keeper."
