Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Potato salad is most definitely my favorite dish at a summer get together. I am always excited to try a new recipe! I found this one on pinterest and I just could not pass it up! At your next cookout or BBQ I would most definitely recommend making this potato salad! It tastes exactly like a loaded baked potato...bacon, cheese, potato, sour just can't go wrong with that!! Its yummy yummy! I served it chilled though the originally recipe served it warm so you can do whatever you prefer!

Recipe Source: Dining with Leslie
Serving: 8 to 12 people
  • 8 large Russet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 cup sour cream (plus a dab extra)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (Leave some aside for the topping)
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped chives (Leave some aside for the topping)
  • 16 strips of bacon cooked and crumbled (Leave some aside for the topping)
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • Salt to the taste
  • In a small bow, mix together mayonnaise and sour cream.
  • Add the chives, cheese, and pepper to the bowl.
  • Add salt if needed
  • Let chill in the fridge
  • Peel and cube potatoes into bite size pieces.
  • Put potatoes in a large pot and cover with water.
  • Boil until fork tender (about 18-20 minutes). You'll want to make sure that you don't cook them for too long because you don't want mashed potatoes!!
  •  Drain potatoes and let cool. 
  • Put potatoes in a large bowl and combine mayo/sour cream mixture. 
  • Fold in crumbles of bacon.
  • Chill until ready to serve.
  • Top with the remaining chives, cheese, and bacon.
