Loaded Baked Potato Salad

4 Jul

This was part of our 4th of July meal.  I looked around at a few different recipes before settling on this combination.  I think it turned out pretty good!

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

 

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

What you need:

2 pounds red potatoes, skins left on, and diced into 1″ pieces
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
8 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus some  for garnish
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
Chives, for garnish (optional)

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 425 F.  Lay potatoes on a baking sheet and spray with a little olive oil. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.  Allow to cool completely.

Once potatoes are cool, add them to a large bowl and mix in chopped hard-boiled eggs, crumbled bacon, and shredded cheddar cheese.

In a separate small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and mustard.  Pour over the potato mixture and stir in until well coated.  Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.  If desired, top with more shredded cheddar cheese and chives.
