Warm German Potato Salad
Unlike traditional potato salad in the South, the German make theirs using vinegar and bacon bits. It's also served warm. Enjoy this with brats and a cold Texas beer.
Combine vinegar, sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon salt, and set aside.
In a large skillet, fry the bacon until crisp; remove and crumble. Drain bacon drippings from the skillet reserving 1/4 cup. Return 1/4 cup bacon drippings to skillet, and sauté the chopped onion just until softened. Add the vinegar mixture to the skillet and bring to a boil. Immediately add the chopped potatoes and crumbled bacon. Gently toss until heated through. Add black pepper to taste, and serve at once.
