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.
BACON! Get that bacon sizzling and fill your home with that smoky and artery clogging aroma!
A moment of silence… Now cut it to bits like you’ve lost all sense!
Now lets combine all of these ingredients and devour it!
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!
