Grandma Flo's German Potato Salad

“A wonderful German dish, that has been passed down from my grandmother to my mother and now to me. The trick to this recipe is not to stir the bacon & cream mixture, let it reduce in size and foam. This will cut the grease from the bacon into the cream and it will not separate later on.”
