Warmer Kartoffelsalat – Warm Potato Salad Recipe

A typical potato salad, which makes a great accompaniment to Bratwurst. Unlike the Americanized ‘German’ potato salad, you will not find any mayonnaise in this.

Difficulty: moderate
Preparation Time: 45 minutes
Portions: 6 – 8


  • 6 – 8 boiling potatoes, water to cover, salt
  • 1/4 pound bacon
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup beef stock
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  • sour cream (optional)
  • minced parsley


  1. Boil potatoes with skin on, in slightly salted water. Be sure to not overcook. Peel while hot, and cut in thin slices.
  2. Fry bacon in saucepan (large enough to accommodate broth and vinegar), and when golden, but not crisp, add onions. Saute slowly until onions become translucent. Remove from heat.
  3. Pour in vinegar and stock. Bring to a boil and pour over sliced potatoes. Using a wood spatula, gently lift potatoes a little so dressing runs over them evenly.
  4. If using, fold in sour cream.
  5. Sprinkle with minced parsley.
