I copied this from the "Dogcatcher Collection" Sounds really good.
The kindness of neighbors. Jared dripped it off this morning. It will make me three full dinners plus a couple of snacks. Oops. Make that one snack. I just stuck one of the back on wrapped jalapeños in the microwave. It was great. Jared is a gardner. He grows his own potatoes. I'm considering making potato salad from the smashed potatoes. Any recipes?
German Potato Salad.
2 1/4 pounds potatoes (waxy variety, such as Yukon Gold
4 slices bacon
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1 cup onions, diced
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon sugar, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons mild brown mustard
Cook the potatoes in simmering salted water until just tender, about 15-18 minutes. Drain and dry. While the potatoes are still hot, remove the skins and slice the potatoes 1/2-inch thick.
While the potatoes are cooking, prepare the dressing. Cook the bacon over medium-high heat until the fat has rendered and the bacon is crisp. Remove the bacon to a plate with a slotted spoon, reserving the bacon fat in the pan; crumble the bacon into small pieces, and reserve.
Bring the chicken broth, vinegar, onions, salt, sugar, and pepper to a boil.
Combine the oil, rendered bacon fat, and mustard with the warm potatoes. Pour the boiling broth-vinegar mixture over the potatoes. Toss in the crumbled bacon. Serve warm
