german potato salad

my name may be hungarian, but there is plenty of german blood in my veins. perhaps that’s why i can’t get enough of my grandmother’s warm german potato salad. it’s tangy and sweet and fresh and earthy all at the same time. perfect served with chicken sausages, browned onions and salad.


grandma’s warm german potato salad

4 medium potatoes
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley

cook potatoes in jackets (her words!) and cut into bite-sized/potato-salad-sized pieces.

heat butter in a frying pan, add onion and cook until soft but not brown. mix in flour, sugar, salt and pepper. then add water and vinegar. cook, stirring until thick.

pour sauce over potatoes and serve warm. (the original recipe calls for crumbled bacon over the top, but i substitute fresh parsley. up to you!)


thanks, g’ma!
