      No Rating...yet. For all you dummies (like me) out there, Step 3 is a little ambiguous, but it's VERY IMPORTANT to pour the egg mixture INTO the bacon grease, as instructed. The egg is what thickens it up, so if it doesn't cook, you get a watery potato salad. Add a little heat if you need it I'm going to try this one again to see if I can get it right. It was good anyway, watery or not, although quite a bit sweeter then I expected! A pinch of cayenne was not enough for my taste...I cound't actually taste it at all. I'm going to push it up to 1/8 tsp next time (with halfs on everything to get 6 servings instead of 12), and maybe add some paprika just for kicks. Ate this with some grilled ribeye steaks and a cold hoppy English-style ale...Yummm! I'll post a followup to let you know how it went.

      This recipe is almost identical to my mothers recipe. She was born and raised in Regensburg Germany. This can also be served at room temperature and cold. It doesn't have to be HOT.

      Lali, I wish your Great-Great-Grand Mother were here today so I could personally thank her for creating such a wonderful recipe! Instead I would like to thank you for your decision to share it with the world. This recipe is truly scrumptious and should be tried by everyone who reads this review. The blend of flavors in this potato salad is awsome. Very easy to prepare considering the wonderful dish you will obtain with the results. Thank you, Lali for sharing this with all of here on Recipezaar!
