German Potato Salad

German Potato Salad is one of those dishes I tell my husband he makes SO MUCH better than me….lol. That way it became one of his special dishes and I get out of making it. I had to work and he had the day off, so I put chicken in the slow cooker for our supper tonight. I needed to purchase some floating plants for my fish pond now that the chance of frost is pretty much gone. So after I took my client home, I stopped at the garden nursery. I called my husband and asked him to turn the slow cooker to the buffet setting as I was going to be late. I just love my Ninja 3 in 1 slow cooker! Well, my sweet husband went ahead and made German Potato Salad and green beans to finish up my meal. I walked into the house and everything was ready to eat! Yes I know, he spoils me and I feel very blessed to have him. He even took pictures for me so I could share them with you!


Only five ingredients to make this delicious side dish. We cook two pounds of bacon, crumble it and store it in the freezer for quick use in recipes like this one. The bacon breaks apart easy when frozen and tastes just as good as if you just cooked it.


He peeled and cut the potatoes and then chopped the onions.


Make a solution of vinegar and sugar to your taste. We like it sweet and use 50/50 mixture.


Cook and crumble the bacon. Mix your potatoes, onions and bacon and place in a baking dish. Pour vinegar/water mixture over top of the potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste. Bake, with a lid, at 350 degrees about 1 hour or until potatoes are tender.
