Why do Germans put words together? It just reminds me of a joke...a little butt humor. I don’t know if it goes with a food website, but here goes...
What is the German word for constipation?
German potato salad reminds me of a day with my father. He or I (it’s been awhile) or we were making some and I was rummaging around in the spices and grabbed some Italian seasoning....did I tell you I couldn’t cook ergo the name of my website???Anyway, the Italian seasoning didn’t make it in the German potato salad.
I’m sure Bobby Flay has made his perfecto, oh I mean perfekt! Serves 8
3 lbs of new potatoes
1 yellow onion, quartered
1/2 lb of bacon, diced
1 large red onion, diced
3/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
1/4 cup canola oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
8 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
In a large pot place the potatoes and the yellow onion in cold water. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, discard onion and set aside to cool. Once cool enough to handle cut into cubes. Place cubed potatoes in a bowl and cover.
In a skillet cook the bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon onto a plate with a paper towel. Add the onion to the bacon fat and cook until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Carefully add the vinegar and mustard seeds, cook an additional 2 minutes. Whisk in the canola oil and salt and pepper, to taste.
Pour over the potatoes and add in the bacon. Fold in the green onions and parsley. Taste to adjust seasonings, salt and pepper if needed. Serve warm. Yum Yum!
