  1. I think Americans love too much salt, he salted LIKE THE SEA the water when he boiled the potato slices the bacon is salty, plus he adds more salt 😑 that's a lot of salt!

  2. I have never cared for American potato salad of any variety, Southern or Northern, period. The turn-off is, I suspect, the boiled potatoes. On the other hand, I first tasted den Schwäbischen Erdäpfelsalat (South Germans and Austrians use Erdapfel for "potato," those North and Central Germans use Kartoffel for "potato") around 1974 when I was a teen and a German lady, member of my Catholic parish in north Florida, had made it for a special supper at the parish social hall. That salad was downright upright!

  3. I think the salads would look more appetizing if you removed the eyes from the potatoes. Interesting to see two different versions of potato salad neither of which is like the English one. Thank you for the video.

  4. • • • This is not potato salad (Kartoffelsalat) These are Bratkartoffeln / Pan Fried Potatoes. There is are two diferent other recepies that are Potato Salad: One with Mustart and Mayonaise and one with vinegar and oil • • •

  5. My German grandma was vegetarian and made her German Potato Salad with cucumbers and served it cold with red wine vinegar and olive oil (instead of bacon) and it was incredible!

  6. I am Australian and love potato salad. Usually it is done here with bacon, onion, mayo and (sometimes) sliced boiled egg on top.
    HOWEVER, I had two short business trips to Vienna where they do the South German (Schwabian) potato salad, similar to the one you did. I was in heaven.
    Over the years I have tried to reconstruct this, and now youtube is my friend! Whilst we don't do American style crispy bacon, I am going to try your version with "normal" bacon.
    Thanks Chef Billy!
