Super Yummy German Potato Salad

German Potato Salad may not be the first thing that comes to mind when choosing something to have with traditional BBQ’s, but this one is definitely a great addition to your grilling rotation!

Super Yummy German Potato Salad

With grilling season and gatherings galore, potato salad seems like it is a staple.  I like to try some things that are differently from time to time so I was excited to try this.  I made mine with fresh potatoes from the Farmer’s Market.  I’m not going to lie, I was panicking when I saw the per-refrigerated bowl and the abundance of liquid, but by morning it had set up perfectly.

If you’ve never tried German Potato Salad, I highly recommend trying it out.  I swear this recipe is delicious!  We also have a ‘regular’ potato salad that is our own creation and a Light Summer Garden Salad that uses all fresh veggies, you could of course use non-fresh veggies too.

If you are looking for a healthy summer treat, try out these Mock Welch’s Strawberry Popsicles.  They taste slightly better than I remember Welch’s tasting as a child.  Definitely a treat to cool ya down on those hot days!

German Potato Salad

Ingredients:

16 New Potatoes, cooked

6 boiled eggs,

1 med onion, minced

4-8 slices bacon, cooked crisply

1 pt mayo

1/4 cup vinegar

1/2 c water

2 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp white sugar

1 tsp salt

Directions:

  1. Boil potatoes, drain and put in bowl, prepare boiled eggs. Set aside.
  2. Mix together vinegar, water, brown sugar, white sugar and salt.  Pour over potato mixture. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. Add mayo.
  3. Mix together, adding all but a few chopped eggs (save some for the top) and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.  I smashed the potatoes a bit, you can do yours as you prefer.  It will look very liquidy, just let it sit and don’t worry, it will turn out perfectly.

 

I’d love to hear your thoughts and modifications!

What is your go to side dish for BBQ’s and such?

Kyvan BBQ Review

kyvanBBQThe other day I was looking up what foods were well known around the country and realized that it wasn’t just in my head- the South really is famous for BBQ!  That being said, I will happily admit that I am a BBQ fanatic!  I love it way too much not to keep trying new brands when I come across them!  I swear there are at least 4 different types of BBQ sauce in my fridge!  Different sauces for different uses.  😀  Or perhaps my flavor of the day whenever I break them out!

We tried out Kyvan and have found a new perfect marinating BBQ sauce!  I made the traditional BBQ for our house- BBQ Chicken.  One of my favorite foods forever, so I know a good one when I see taste it!  Kyvan was delicious!  Soaked into the chicken and made the chicken amazingly good!

The sauce has a solid flavor and it was just amazing, until I cooked it on the chicken.  Then, it was unbelievable!  If you haven’t already, check it out, you won’t regret it!  I’m dying to try their other products!!!  I can’t wait to try it in some other dishes!  I think it would be amazing in baked beans!
