German potato salad is often found at potlucks, dinner tables, and church gatherings. It is different from typical American potato salad in that it is usually served warm and garnished with bacon. Most recipes for this side dish are quite simple, and include potatoes and vinegar.

Here’s a not-so-common one: Sweet Onion pie. This recipe is truly Texan, as it uses the 1015 Texas sweet onion, which was developed in the Lone Star State and publicized in 1983. If these specific onions are not what you have stocked, other sweet varieties such as Walla Walla or Vidalia can be used.
