|Weekday Chef's Creamy Potato Salad with Bacon!
|This is one of my kids' favorite things that I make for BBQ dinners....great for summer picnics too.
My 7 ingredients are: Potatoes, eggs, bacon, celery, mustard, mayo, and salad seasoning. These 7 yummy things makes a great potato salad. But don't eat it that often because it is very high in calories and the egg yolks aren't so good for your arteries. But it's great for a special Summer BBQ.
I like to use either red, new potatoes, or Yukon Gold potatoes. Both just seem creamier to me.
|And of course bacon makes everything a little bit better, now doesn't it?
Potato Salad Ingredients List:
13 to 15 small and medium potatoes cut up into bite size chunks so it fills a big salad bowl
7 eggs (boiled with the potatoes, then chopped up)
1 1/4 cups of good quality mayo
3 Tablespoons regular French's Mustard
4-5 pieces of bacon cooked and crumbled
3-4 stalks of celery finely sliced (I like that bit of crunch)
5-7 shakes (to taste) of Salad Seasoning (about 2 teaspoons)
Seasoning salt and pepper if you need more flavor
Top with a few shakes of parsley flakes
|It's hard to find this stuff sometimes, but it MAKES every single salad better, pasta, potato, spinach...I use it a LOT!
|The best potatoes to use are these red, new potatoes. Just leave the skins on!
|Yukon Gold also make great potato salads...leave skins on or peel as you please...I peeled mine for this salad.
|It's a great side dish. And it tastes even better the next day when all the seasonings have melded together as leftovers!
