Hot German Potato Salad

Recipe by MsBindy

I absolutely adore this salad. I like it enough I will actually eat bacon! Based on the way my MIL makes German Potato salad, this is probably not vinegary enough to be authentic, but I love it just the way it is. I hope you like it too.

I am evil and used the bacon fat instead of the oil. I guess I will die sooner, but happier. Thanks!
