Grandma's German Potato Salad

Comment on this recipe

My grandmother is of German heritage and one of my favorite memories growing up is cooking with her. She always let me help her and this boosted my interest in being a good cook, too. This special dish was served often with Grams crispy catfish caught by Grandpa and eaten at neighborhood fish fries in Cordova.

Ingredients

6 large potatoes
4 large eggs
1/2 cup celery, chopped fine
1/2 cup onion, chopped fine
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped fine
6 slices bacon, fried, drained, crumbled (reserve 3 tablespoons grease)

Dressing
1 cup Hellman's Mayonnaise
1/2 cup pickle relish
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon German mustard

Instructions

Boil potatoes with skins on and hard-boil eggs. Then peel both, chop fine and stir together in 2-1/2 quart glass bowl. Add celery, onion and green pepper. Stir in crumbled bacon bits with the 3 tablespoons reserved grease and set aside. Mix all dressing ingredients and pour over potato mixture, chill and enjoy!
