This is just delicious! I like to serve it with a good sausage like bratwurst or kielbasa.


  • 8 potatoes, chopped in bite size pieces
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked until crisp, and crumbled
  • 6 Tbsp. bacon fat, reserved
  • 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 8 Tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 2 - 4 tsp. sugar
  • salt and pepper


Combine everything but the potatoes in a saucepan. Mix and heat it to boiling, and turn heat off. When the potatoes are done, drain, but don't rinse. Pour the hot dressing over immediately and mix gently but thoroughly. Serve hot.

Servings: 6 - 8
Prep Time: 15 Minutes

I met my future mother-in-law in 1956. She made a hot potato salad that was delicious and kept really well. I have tweaked it to fit my taste.


Total Time: 1 hr

Yield: about 10


  • 5 large potatoes, cooked, mashed while hot
  • 2 boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 stalks celery and/or seed, dried leaves
  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • 1/4 cup sugar or Splenda
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup Miracle Whip, light


Preparing this with the hot potatoes really brings the variety of taste to blend.

  1. Cook potatoes until soft. Drain potatoes. Boil eggs 1 minute, remove from heat and cover for 15 minutes and peel. Both of these should be ready about the same time.
  2. Chop celery and onions while potatoes and eggs are cooking. Measure the pickle relish and other ingredients and have ready to add to hot potatoes
  3. Mix all ingredients while potatoes are hot! If you like it a little sweeter or more mustard or whatever additions you like.

I have added green olives to this. Or you may add some other salad ingredient.

  • 8 golden potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1/2 lb. bacon, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • fresh parsley, chopped


Boil the potatoes until they are just tender and drain. Cook the bacon and drain; reserve the drippings. Add the onions to the bacon drippings and cook until tender. Stir in the vinegar, water, salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute. Place the potatoes in a large bowl and add the onion and vinegar mixture. Stir in the bacon and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley. Serve warm.

My mother made a hot or cold potato salad and I've lost the recipe for the dressing. You diced your potatoes and cooked until tender, drained and while still hot poured a dressing of crushed red pepper, parsley, red wine, oil and (?) over your potatoes. You could eat it warm or refrigerate and have cold at a picnic.

The missing ingredient might be dill. And possibly some dijon mustard.

My mother and grandmother made a German potato salad ( my step-grandfather was
German). It had oil, vinegar, and other things, but there was no recipe. Just handed down. You may look up German potato salad on the interent to see if you can find one like your.
