So, for Mother’s Day we BBQ’d with my family.  I decided to make some Loaded Baked Potato Salad.  I had seen a few on Pinterest but I didn’t go by any that I saw on there.  They were more inspiration photos to look at.  I just thought of the things I love on a baked potato and threw it all together.  It was pretty delicious!  Here’s the thing…I’m more of a throw everything in by eye kind of girl.  But I’ll try to give you some measurements to go by.

Loaded Baked Potato Salad–For a Crowd:

2 3Lb bags of red potatoes

16oz tub sour cream

2c miracle whip

2-3T bacon grease

1lb bacon

2c shredded cheddar

1/4c chopped green onion

salt, pepper, and paprika to taste

1.  Chop and boil potatoes until tender.  Drain.

2.  Cook bacon until crispy.  Set 2-3T of grease aside to cool.

3.  In a large bowl mix sour cream, miracle whip, and cooled bacon grease.

4.  Once potatoes are cooled toss potatoes, chopped bacon, cheese, and onions with the dressing.  Season to taste.

My dad was feeling a little creative with the left over green onion.  Yes, that says “Eat Me”.  Don’t believe me?  Here’s a better shot…

He is such an artist haha!  And because picture taking is not my thing, one of my brothers took all the photos.  You should all go follow him on his new Instagram page.  And you should go make some of this yummy potato salad!  And remember, I’m not exact with measurements.  Just do what you think will be good and adjust as needed!  But please, let me know if you try it out!  I would love to know what you think and hear any changes you made.  Have a great day guys!
