Hot German Potato Salad Casserole Passed down from my German/Dutch Grandmother. A hot potato salad with bacon, cheese and a creamy/vinegar sauce makes this a wonderful dish to serve with bratwurst on a cold fall day in Deutschland or wherever you might be. I usually double the bacon and sauce to make this extra flavorful.

prep: 20 mins cook: 1 hr total: 1 hr 20 mins Servings: 8 Yield: 8 servings


  • 4 cups cubed potatoes
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 3 green onions, diced
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Step 2

    Bring potatoes to a boil in a large pot of salted water. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain; transfer potatoes to a large baking dish.

    Step 3

    Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels; crumble and sprinkle over potatoes.

    Step 4

    Heat a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir celery and green onion until celery is tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer vegetables to baking dish.

    Step 5

    Whisk mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt, and black pepper in a bowl until smooth. Pour mixture over potatoes and stir until well mixed. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese.

    Step 6

    Bake in preheated oven until cheese is melted, 20 to 35 minutes.
