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!
