    List of Ingredients

    Deutscher Kartoffel Salat---Heiss

    5 # of potatoes (red are best but whites will do)

    2 large onions-chopped
    8 ribs celery-cut in 1/2 inch pieces
    5 hard boiled eggs-sliced

    3/4 cup oil
    1/4 cup cider vinegar

    Wash potatoes well, boil them with the skin on, till just tender. Do not overcook !!! Boil eggs,
    peel and slice. Slice bacon and fry till crisp, set aside bacon till later. Remove most of the
    grease from pan. Leave about 3 tbsp, add the celery and cook slowly till half done. Then add
    the onions to pan and finish frying till just tender, add the bacon to pan and warm through. Peel
    the warm potatoes and slice into 1/4 inch slices, into a large bowl. Add the pickles, sliced eggs,
    and pour the warm bacon mixture over it. Add the oil,( add the vinegar a little at a time, some
    vinegar's are stronger than others, so do it to taste ). Salt & pepper
    to taste. Add dill and parsley,- optional.
    Mix gently, do not break up the potatoes!

    This is an authentic German Recipe passed down for at least three generations. My friend Schatzie gave this recipe to me. Thanks Leona!!!!
