Cooking with Cameron: German potato salad

A warm potato salad is great as a side dish or even just on its own! This recipe is a German inspired mix. So get into it and enjoy a tasty meal!


  • 1kg baby potatoes (waxy) 
  • 100g streaky bacon, thinly sliced 
  • ¼ red onion  
  • ¼ cup butter (or oil) 
  • 1/3 cup Apple cider vinegar

  • 2 green onions (finely chopped) 
  • 1tsp mustard 


  1. Place potatoes in a large pot of cold water. Bring to the boil and cook for 10-15min or until cooked just through. We don’t want them falling apart. 
  2. Drain, cool and slice, then set aside 
  3. Place bacon in a large cold frypan. Turn heat up to medium. As the heat builds the fat from the bacon will render. Cook till it starts to brown up, about 3min

  6. Add butter and melt 
  7. Toss through sliced potatoes till they are well coated with the dressing and rewarded through
  8. Serve up warm.
