    Roger Nelson's German Potato Salad Ward Dossche - 2:292/854

    Roger and I discussed food. He talked to me about a recipe for
    what he called "German potato salad" that originated from his
    mother's side of the family "and was a real treat to eat", or so
    he said. He also volunteered "Sadly, mother couldn't teach
    either of my wives to make it, although she did have some
    success with wife #2, who declared it too difficult to make"

    According to his late sister, who Roger claimed had a fantastic
    memory, the recipe was as follows (verbatim):

    2 lb. Irish potatoes (mother boiled them with the skin on for
    easier peeling)
    4 slices bacon (crisp)
    1 small onion, chopped
    2 tbsp. water
    1 tbsp. vinegar
    4-6 hard-boiled eggs sliced (depending on the amount you want
    to make, then you would have to adjust the amount of
    potatoes and other ingredients)

    Fry bacon while potatoes are boiling and place them on a
    plate to drain; keep bacon grease for later use

    When potatoes are boiled and skinned, cut them to the desired
    size and place in large bowl. Crunch bacon and add it and
    the rest of the ingredients (including hot bacon grease) and
    mix thoroughly. The bacon grease holds everything together.
    I ate it hot, luke-warm and cold. I liked it so much.

    Season to taste.
