Chantel's Hot German Potato Salad

My little sister made this for me and my husband a long time ago. I didn't even know she could cook before I ate this! This is my own version of her recipe.
  • 3 lbs Potatoes (about 9 medium size)
  • 6 slices of crumbled veggie bacon or a few handfuls of crumbly fake bacon (like the kind you put on salads)
  • a couple glugs of olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (I prefer Grade B/Medium Grade)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • dash pepper
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
Clean potatoes and remove eyes and any other unsightly bits. Boil in salted water (1/2 tsp to 1 cup water) for 30-35 minutes or until tender, drain, slice thinly.

While potatoes are a-boilin', fry fake bacon and onion in olive oil until onion is golden brown. Stir in flour, maple syrup, salt, celery seed, and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring until bubbling. Remove from heat. Stir in water and vinegar. Heat back to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil & stir for 1 minute. Stir in potato slices carefully. Heat thoroughly, stirring lightly to coat potato slices.

Serve hot!
