Family favorite - I think I got this from Betty Crocker's cookbook way back when! I constantly get requests to make this and everyone always asks for the recipe! FANTASTIC!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook potatoes- with skins on until tender.
  2. Let cool and cut in bite size chunks.
  3. Fry bacon in pan- drain and cool bacon on paper towel- reserve fat.
  4. Saute onion in bacon fat until soft.
  5. Add flour sugar, water and vinegar.
  6. Boil and then reduce heat- should become a nice thick sauce.
  7. When sauce is thick add potatoes back in and crumble bacon over.
  8. Serve immediately- while hot!

So very tasty! I added a leek in with the onion, because I love leek with potato! Thank you for sharing!

I think this IS from the Betty Crocker cookbook. It's the way I always made German potato salad, and since I hadn't in awhile... this recipe was perfect for refreshing my memory. As always, it WAS fantastic!! Thanks for posting it, greyghost! :)
