Baked German Potato Salad Recipe

What makes this German potato salad so different is that it's sweet instead of tangy. During the holidays, my family has an annual ham dinner, and I always prepare it. The first time I took it to work, people kept coming out of their offices to find out what smelled so good. By lunch, it was gone. Now I make a double batch to take to work! —Julie Myers, Lexington, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 12 medium red potatoes (about 3 pounds)
  • 8 bacon strips
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sweet pickle juice
  • 2/3 cup water, divided
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a saucepan, cook potatoes until just tender; drain. Peel and slice into an ungreased 2-qt. baking dish; set aside. In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Crumble bacon and set aside. Saute onions in drippings until tender. Stir in brown sugar, vinegar, pickle juice, 1/2 cup water, parsley, salt and celery seed. Simmer, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, combine flour and remaining water until smooth; stir into onion mixture. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Pour over potatoes. Add bacon; gently stir to coat. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"baking this gives it a different taste than our usual German Potato salad. We found it very good, but it does require extra time."

"Took this to a potluck where it was a hit. One of my friends said his German part was very happy. For me I will cut back on the sugar a little next time but it was great. No problem doing it in a crock pot."
