The Monday Recipe Blog
Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes are featured every Monday on this blog. Her heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
Lois was from Michigan, where there are quite a few people of German descent, including the Mueller's. This German potato salad was a favorite in the Mueller house....
Lois Elaine's German Potato Salad:
3 T. flour
1 t. salt
1 T. celery seed
Sugar - approx. 1 cup
1 c. vinegar
1 c. water
1 small jar pimientos
bacon - several slices, cooked and crumbled, and save the grease
2 onions, chopped
Put the following in a frying pan: bacon grease, flour, salt and celery seed. Start with 4 T. sugar. Mix together, then add onions and 1 c. water. Heat and stir. Add vinegar. Then add more tablespoons of sugar until it's as sweet as you want it.
Add pimientos and bacon. Pour over potatoes and mix through. Bake in the oven until heated.
