German Potato Salad
3 cups diced, peeled potatoes
4 slices bacon
1 small onion diced
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/8 teaspoons pepper
1 tablespoon chopped, fresh parsley
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
