I don't have a recipe for German potato salad.....I do it by "feel"but
Boil a medium sized pot of red potatoes until done (2-3#). Take out and cut up in quarters or eighths depending on size. Bite size.
In a frying pan, cook 4 or 5 slices of bacon, on low so they don't burn, but cook until really crisp....drain on Scott towel and put in freezer. If ya cook on too high they will burn before they get really crisp. You want them so crisp they will crumble easily.
On really low, throw in 3 or 4 diced green onions in with all the bacon grease, green parts, white parts all of it 'cept the roots.
Dissolve about 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar in about 1/3 cup of cider vinegar...mix til dissolved.
Take bacon out of freezer ( it crumbles easier in the freezer) and crumble up pretty small. Toss in with potatoes. Pour sugar/vinegar mixture over potatoes, pour bacon grease and slightly cooked green onions over potatoes, Toss.
That's it! Salt and pepper....maybe no salt, quite a bit of salt in bacon grease.
That is from memory, offhand, and measurements estimated. I don't really use or have a recipe.
This will get ya in the "ballpark".....adjust next time to what pleases ya. Serve while everything is still hot.
