Steps

  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan, place potatoes; add enough water just to cover potatoes. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Cut potatoes into 3/4-inch dice.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 7 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
  • 3
    Cook onion in bacon fat in skillet over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in sugar, flour, salt, celery seed and pepper; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • 4
    Stir water and vinegar into onion mixture. Heat to boiling over high heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened.
  • 5
    Reduce heat to medium. Stir in potatoes and cook, stirring gently to coat potatoes, until hot and bubbling. Top with bacon. Serve warm.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For a bit of extra tart flavor, add 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard when adding the water and vinegar.
  • tip 2
    If preferred, potatoes can be cut in 1/4-inch slices instead of dicing. If slicing, for best results, opt for round potatoes.
  • tip 3
    In this Hot German Potato Salad recipe, red or white wine vinegar can be substituted for the cider vinegar.
