Loaded Potato Salad


My family does not care for potato salad with mayonnaise. I love it but it is difficult for me to eat enough to want to make it for myself. We had bacon in the refrigerator the other day and my kids wanted loaded potatoes. Well, why not make it loaded potato salad? Both kids were up for it. I figured with enough bacon they would eat anything.

Verdict:

I was right. They loved the salad. The best part is you can serve it warm or cold! We ate it just after the potatoes cooked and it was delicious. But, then we refrigerated the leftovers and freshened it up with a little mayo and sour cream and it made it a whole new dish and it was good too. We had it with sausages and it made the perfect picnic meal.
