This past week I have been posting recipes from my parents visit.  Today is no different.  Over the weekend my Dad and I barbecued and my Mom made all of the sides.  One of the best was the German Potato salad.  My Mom made this and I had to have the recipe.  Of all of the sides that we had, it was the first of all of the side to be completely eaten.

German Potato Salad – (Thanks Mom)

  • 2 cans Reads German Potato Salad
  • 1 can sliced potato – drained
  • 6 slices bacon – crispy
  • 1 tbs dried onion

The first step is to cut up the 6 slices of bacon into strips and then fry it up until crisp.  Remove the bacon from the pan and let it drain on a paper towel.

I know that this uses a can of german potato salad as the base, but it is amazing.  You have to give it a try.

      Jay, I agree that the time seems like a lot, but that is how my mother makes it.

      I usually get it at walmart. If you can’t , you can order it online from Amazon.
