German Potato Salad

Hey Y'all-
I have been beating myself up every time I cook something great that I don't take process photos. I know I know not everyone needs that, but I know my favorite cooking tutorials have them, and I try to write a blog I would want to read. I've made several really good things lately, and I decided that sharing the recipe with only the finished product is better then nothing.

This is something I have always loved, and since it will be a while till I go to Oma's Haus in San Antonio (My go to dinner after Six Flags) and M's aunt's mom probably wont share her recipe (although I haven't asked) I decided to try it myself. This is a mixture of a few things I found on pinterest. Also I added eggs, because I like it that way, its not traditional.

German Potato Salad
 1 pound potatos
2 hard boiled eggs
Olive oil
Half a medium onion
2 cloves garlic
2-3 slices Bacon
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
dash of rice vinegar (optional)
2 Tablespoons mustard
salt and pepper to taste
chopped parsley

Boil potatoes until you can pierce with a fork (depending on the type you may want to peel them first) I just put the eggs in with the potatoes to hard boil them at the same time. drain and set aside, potatoes will need to be warm enough to handle to room temp. Cook bacon too.

In a pot (the same one you just drained?) add olive oil, diced onion and minced garlic to sweat out: About 2 min. add vinegar, mustard, and bacon.

Cut potatoes into 1 inch cubes, dice peeled eggs ( I usually throw out one of the yolks, less cholesterol) stir to combine in pot over very low flame until all the liquid is absorbed. add more olive oil (one recipe said until potatoes are glossy, I thought that sounded like too much, just use your best judgement. I might have put 3 more tables spoons) stir in parsley, add salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.
