This Skillet German Potato Salad is darn near the best potato recipe I have ever made. So savory and full of so much flavor.  You can boil the potatoes and mix the dressing ahead of time.  That leaves more time to concentrate on the rest of the meal or your cocktail.  Believe me I have tweens here so cocktails are a necessity not an option!!

The first time I made this my husband said “Oh my goodness what are you doing to the potato salad.”  I told him “I am putting it in the skillet to crisp the edges and to make the flavors more intense.”  He loved it.  He said “Who would have thought that would work out so well.”  I said “You don’t know unless you try something new.” So this traditional style German Potato Salad gets a bit of a twist by way of a hot skillet with a little bacon grease.
