German Potato Salad

German potato salad is served warm and has a tangy dressing.  I like to make it once in a while for a change of pace from my cold potato salad, and I love to use red potatoes in it.  Besides, who can go wrong with bacon and potatoes? This is based on a very old Taste of Home recipe.

German Potato Salad
5 bacon strips
3/4 c. chopped onion
3 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 1/3 c. water
2/3 c. cider vinegar
1/4 c. sugar
6 c. red potatoes

Scrub red potatoes and cut into bite size chunks.  Bring a pot of water to a boil, add potatoes and boil for 20 min. or until tender.  Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook bacon until crisp and remove to a paper towel to drain.  Drain all but 3 Tbsp. drippings from the skillet.  Add onion to drippings and cook until tender.  Add flour, salt and pepper to the skillet, mixing to cover all the flour in fat.  Add water and vinegar; cook and stir until bubbly and slightly thick.  Add sugar and stir to dissolve.  Crumble bacon.  When potatoes are done, drain.  Stir together bacon, potatoes and dressing.  Serve warm.
