Hot German Potato Salad

Hot German Potato Salad

I make this hot German Potato Salad using Landgaegers sausages from The Sausage Shop in New Ulm, Minnesota. They are the most tender, juicy, and flavorful sausages I have ever had. The people at The Sausage Shop will mail sausages, but not during the hot summer months. Their gift baskets for Christmas are wonderful. Please, try them!! This recipe is a result of my fiddling with ones from several cookbooks. I think the sweet-sour balance is just perfect.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 3/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 lb. fully cooked Polish sausage, cut into chunks
  • 6 cups cooked, peeled, sliced potatoes (6 medium russets)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper


Melt butter; add onion and garlic. Cook and stir until crisp tender. Add flour; cook and stir for one minute. Add vinegar, water, and sugar; bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

Add sliced potatoes and sausage and stir. Add sour cream, salt and pepper and heat thoroughly (do NOT boil), stirring gently. Serve the German potato salad immediately.
