German potato salad is a popular variation of potato salad that is generally served warm. It is typically more sour and contains pork or bacon.




  1. Peel, thinly slice, and boil the potatoes about 17 minutes or until done but still somewhat firm. Drain, set aside, and allow to cool.
  2. Cook the bacon until crisp. Crumble or chop.
  3. Reserve a small amount of bacon grease and mix with flour, breaking up all clumps of flour. Cook briefly, but try to avoid browning.
  4. Add chopped bacon and remaining ingredients and mix.
  5. Cook for 20 minutes or until smooth at low heat.
  6. Pour sauce over potatoes and stir gently.
  7. Serve warm, room temperature, or cooled.
