German Potato Salad

There's a little overpriced grocery store/deli next door to my apartment complex in Philadelphia. Though expensive, they do make fantastic sandwiches, pasta salads and German potato salad fresh, daily. I usually tend to go in there once a week (whenever I'm home), order a hoagie sandwich (honey-smoked turkey on white), and a side order of German potato salad. Now, I've made plenty of potato salad in my lifetime, but never a German Potato Salad. Being inspired by the little deli where I buy it from, I search online for a worthy recipe. Lo and behold, I found an awesome recipe that my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed.

My Tip: I added celery seeds to give it a slightly different texture. I also would recommend chopping up a few spring onions and adding them as a garnish. Make sure you serve this salad warm!

German Potato Salad
by SCHOLLBEE123 from


3 cups diced peeled potatoes
4 slices bacon
1 small onion, diced
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon celery seeds


  1. Place the potatoes into a pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. Drain, and set aside to cool.
  2. Place the bacon in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Fry until browned and crisp, turning as needed. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add onion to the bacon grease, and cook over medium heat until browned. Add the vinegar, water, sugar, salt and pepper to the pan. Bring to a boil, then add the potatoes and parsley. Crumble in half of the bacon. Heat through, then transfer to a serving dish. Crumble the remaining bacon over the top, and serve warm.
