Cooking: Cheesy Bacon Potato Salad

This dish combines my two loves... bacon and potato salad.

How could this dish not be heavenly?

Start with 6 large Yukon Gold cooked potatoes.

Combine 12 slices of bacon, crumbled

1/4 c. of green onion and 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped

1 1/3 c. mayonnaise, 1/2 c. sour cream and a package of ranch dressing mix ( Note: I always made mustard-based potato salads but actually, this dressing if fantastic. I will have to alter the way I make potato salad in the future)

Dice potatoes.

Add to potato mixture and gently toss. Taste if you need to add salt.

Gently stir in 8 oz. of shredded cheddar cheese.

Cover and chill for 4 hours. Actually, it was better the second day. With labor day coming, this dish is a fantastic addition to your Labor Day party!!!


  1. Cynthia, We have this in common! WOW! Does this look delicious... and just in time for those Labor Day Picnics... and fall tailgating.

  2. Just so you all know, I licked my plate. I am not a huge fan of potato salad... I couldn't get enough. The ranch and cheese and bacon... HEAVEN!!!

    This is a must try!

  3. Oh my word.... this looks wonderful!!
