More Home Cooking for Sports Fans: Authentic German Potato Salad

     Sweeten up this recipe with American Mead or a German-Inspired Riesling.

“Wine had such ill effects on Noah’s health that

all he could do was to live 950 years.” 

 ~ Will Rogers

     Grandpa Bruggner mother’s maiden name was Futerknecht. Those facts alone guarantee that the family hot potato salad recipe was truly authentic and successfully kid-tested time and time again.

     First, combine a ratio of six medium boiled potatoes with three eggs.

     Slice the spuds carefully.

     On the side, fry bacon that has been cut into small pieces until it becomes crispy.

     #4: Beat the following ingredients for every six taters:

  • The eggs
  • One-cup sugar
  • Two tablespoons flour
  • A teaspoon of salt
  • One-quarter teaspoon pepper

    Accent the beaten liquid with these “secret ingredients”:

  • One-tablespoon celery seed
  • One half teaspoon mustard seed
  • Three quarters cup vinegar
  • One-quarter cup water
  • One diced onion

     Go for a quarter cup of Mead (honey wine) or a sweet German wine.

     Stir all ingredients gently in a large baking dish.

     Set it in a 320-degree oven about 45 minutes before serving time.

     Essen Sie! Gesundheit!
