I know this is a little late for being a Tuesday post. I actually made the salad yesterday, but it was a little late for dinner, and everyone attacked it. I didn't have time to take a pretty picture before most of it was gone. So, you only get to see a serving.
Now, we all know that everything is better with bacon on it, and so is this potato salad. I know everyone has favorite potato salad recipes, but even my kid who doesn't like potatoes gobbles this up. Now, on to the recipe:
Bacon Potato Salad
7-8 medium sized potatoes
7-8 hard boiled eggs
12 oz bacon, cooked and broken into pieces
2 stalks green onion (or favorite onion), chopped
1 cup mayonnaise or miracle whip (some people have a preference)
1 Tbsp mustard
1 tsp garlic salt (or to taste)
1/2 tsp paprika + additional to garnish
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
The potatoes are best prepared ahead of time and cooled for several hours. Peel potatoes and boil 20-25 minutes. Drain, cool, and dice. Personally, I like my potatoes on the well cooked side, so they might seem a little mushy to some. Cook them as you like them. Slice all the eggs and set aside 2 for garnish. Cut the rest of the slices in half. Make sure the bacon is also prepared.
Mix the mayo or salad dressing, mustard, garlic salt and paprika. Stir in the onion. Then, add all the prepared item: potatoes, eggs, bacon, and cheese. Top with the remaining egg slices, sprinkle with paprika.
