Caramelized Onion German Potato Salad

Caramelized Onion German Potato Salad

Sweet, vinegary sauce tossed with potatoes, caramelized onions and crisp bacon makes for the best way to celebrate the end of summer and welcome fall this Labor Day.

One of my favorite foods in all the land is a twice baked potato filled with butter, bacon, cheese and sour cream. But trying to be healthy and all doesn’t quite mesh with the feelings I have towards that glorious potato. So what do you do when you want a comforting, creamy potato but not all
