  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 4 shallots (small to med size -- to taste)

  1. Brown up the bacon until crispy. Whatever your favorite method and put to side until cool on paper-towels. Skip this step if vegetarian.
  2. Boil the potatoes in the skin for roughly an hour. Stick a fork in them and if it goes in without resistance they are done.
  3. Let the potatoes cool for 5-10 minutes
  4. Peel the potatoes with a dull knife or spoon when still warm don't worry if they crumble a little.
  5. Place peeled potatoes in a bowl and chop loosely.
  6. Add the apple cider vinegar, finely minced shallots, and spices to the potatoes.
  7. Pour a few tablespoons of boiling water over it all
  8. Mix quickly before the potatoes soak up all the liquid.

Alternate items or serving suggestions

Serve warm or cold. For me tastes better if it's had an hour in the refrigerator to cool off and of course as leftovers.
This is typically a side to grilling for me, but could be a side to any meal.
Recipe feeds about 10-15 servings as a side
Since no Mayo this can be safe for a warm day of grilling.
Depending on what part of Germany you come from mustard may be added for a different flavor profile.
