German Mashed Potatoes

German Mashed Potatoes

I love potatoes! I can eat them any way imaginable which is why I’m all about making new creations with them. I saw a recipe for a classic potato salad recipe and decided to liven it up a bit and mix it with another classic, the mashed potatoes. This version is tangy and hearty, definitely something to keep in your back pocket! This takes this recipe beyond the BBQ.

  1. This is very similar to my Nana’s German potato salad — except she adds torn leaf lettuce as well. So delicious! Thanks for sharing!

      1. One of my local stores sells a lower sodium bacon if you can believe it. It’s quite good and contains 50% less sodium then regular bacon. This is what I use.

    1. I’m so sorry! That was my typo mistake, yes, add the vinegar with the water and wine. If you want to add a little less vinegar or little more that’s ok, it’s totally to your taste.
