Family Recipe Friday - German Potato Salad

This old-fashioned recipe hails from my German Grandmother. Ruth was born in Canada, but lived in the German community of Kitchener, Ontario. She was in  fact a third generation Canadian, but the German influences of her ancestors were evident throughout her home and in her cooking. This is a popular recipe among her descendants.

Grandma Ruth's German Potato Salad

Potatoes, medium 6
Onion, chopped 1
Margarine or butter ¼ cup
Eggs 2
Sour cream ¾ cup
Sugar 3 tbs.
Cider vinegar ¼ cup
Salt 1 tsp.
Pepper pinch

Boil potatoes with skins on, until tender. Keep warm. Sauté onion in butter until clear. Beat eggs and add sour cream, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Add to onion.

Mix well and cook over low heat until thick. Slice potatoes into bite size pieces and add to cream mixture. Toss lightly to coat. Serve Warm.
