For this scrumptious Hot German Potato Salad I used little Chilean Splash potatoes as mentioned. These potatoes were originally bred in the rugged and fertile steppes of the Chilean Andes. They have a bold, rich, lively complex flavor for a little potato.
With a lovely splash of purple these Creamer potatoes will not only liven up your taste buds but have a catchy eye appeal too! They have a silky creamy skin and gorgeous yellow interior. These little oblong potatoes are just as versatile as all the other little potatoes in The Little Potato Company’s family.
They come prewashed and are super easy to microwave, boil, BBQ, grill or roast. And just like the other members of the family they are a great source of potassium, fibre and only have 100 calories per 148 gm. serving.
This excellent side dish is easy to pull together. Besides the pot the potatoes are cooked in, you just need a large skillet to cook the rest. Cook up your bacon to crisp and remove and set aside. Then in the same pan with leaving two tablespoons of bacon fat, (yup the good stuff), you saute up your onions and add in the rest of the ingredients. When the little potatoes are cooked (a quick 15 min.) add them into the pan along with the bacon crumbled and some freshly chopped green onion. There you have it and nothing will be better to go with so many dishes.
- 3 lbs. Chilean Splash Creamer potatoes
- 8 slices bacon
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 Tbsp. white sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 tsp. celery seed
- 1/3 cup white vinegar
- 1 tsp. grainy mustard
- 4 green onion, greens chopped only
- Cut the larger little potatoes in half. In a large pot of salted boiling water add the potatoes and let cook for 15 min. They should be tender but still firm.
- Meanwhile cook the bacon until crisp. Remove and set aside. Drain all but 2 Tbsp. of bacon fat from the pan. Cook the onion until translucent. Turn off the heat. Add in the sugar, salt, pepper, celery seed, white vinegar, and mustard. Stir to dissolve the sugar and salt. When the potatoes are done drain and place into the pan with the onions. Turn on the heat to medium and stir to coat the potatoes. Once the mixture has been mostly absorbed into the potatoes add in the bacon and green onions. Toss and heat through and serve.
