It’s not German Potato salad but they certainly do get along very well.

We were at my mom’s this weekend and visited one of my favourite butchers.  Halenda’s is a great Eastern European meat shop with lots of; homemade sausages, fresh cured bacon, smoked pork chops (possibly the best invention EVER) and really good weiner schnitzel.

When my husband and father-in-law went out “on errands” I knew where they were headed and already had in mind the perfect accompaniment.

Oshawa often doesn’t have a lot to offer but good Polish and German food can be found in abundance.

1/2 lb. bacon cooked with the grease that is left in the pan.
Add to: 1/2 red onion finely diced, 1/2 bunch parsley (chopped), 3/4 cup cider vinegar, 1/4 canola oil, pepper and 1 T. mustard seeds.

Add to 2 lbs. of new potatoes that are cooked until soft but not mushy.  Eat while still warm with weiner snitzel with lots of fresh chunks of lemon.  If you feel guilty about the fat and carbs make a green salad that will just go to waste.
