Loaded Baked Potato Salad

If you’re looking for a classic side dish with a new attitude – this is the one for you!  Potato Salad is a classic side for any BBQ, but this takes it up a notch and is well worth making.  We take all of those delicious flavors you get in a steakhouse baked potato and combine them into a flavor exploding potato salad!  I never end up having leftovers with this, no matter how much I make.  Ever…  It has bacon and bacon wins…always.  ON TO THE POTATO SALAD!

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Ingredients:

  • 5 Yellow Potatoes
  • 1/2 lb Bacon
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 Cups Sour Cream
  • 1 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 Cup Chopped Celery
  • Diced half of a Large Red Onion
  • 1 tspn Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tspn Sugar
  • 1 tsnp Salt
  • 1 tspn Pepper
  • 1 tspn Garlic Powder

Directions:

Cut your potatoes into bite size pieces.  I like to use yellow/gold potatoes in this recipe because they have a nice soft and creamy texture.  That is what we’re looking for here!

Bring a pot of water to a boil and toss in your potatoes.  Let them cook until they are just fork tender, strain them, and let them cool down to room temperature.

I like to refrigerate it for a few hours to let the flavors combine, but it is absolutely acceptable to smear it into your face right away!

Well, here you have it:  The best potato salad around.  You’ll never buy that slop from the store again once you give this tasty morsel a try!  Creamy, cheesy, crunchy, and the perfect addition to a burger or anything!
