Recipe for German Potato Salad
Cooking For A Crowd


    German Potato Salad

    10 pounds red potatoes
    2 pounds bacon
    2 cups red onion, coarsely chopped
    1 1/3 cups vinegar plus water to equal 2 cups
    1 tablespoon granulated sugar
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1 tablespoon caraway seed
    4 eggs, slightly beaten

    Peel potatoes if desired, and cook in lightly boiling water until tender but not mushy. Drain and place in a bowl to cool. When cool enough to handle, cut into chunks.

    Cut bacon strips into eighths and fry in a skillet until crisp. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels. In the same skillet, cook onion in bacon drippings until translucent. Add vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and caraway seed. Continue cooking until sugar is dissolved. Add egg and stir until thickened. Pour over warm potatoes and toss until well blended.

    Serve warm or at room temperature.

    Makes 36 (1/2 cup) servings.
