With apologies to our vegetarian friends, this has to be our favorite way to make potato salad. If it has hard-boiled eggs in it, too, all the better.
Get some recipes below... Classic German potato salads have bacon in them, usually with mustard, but our favorites still have a creamy mayonnaise dressing or else a simple vinaigrette. The saltiness and chewiness of bacon next to buttery potatoes is just too good.
While we know plenty of people who aren't fans of hard-boiled eggs, we think the bacon-egg combination is delicious. Some of the recipes below have eggs, others don't.
This type of potato salad is definitely not a light dish. It's meaty and dense and full of big flavors. And leftovers are perfect for breakfast the next morning...
