Loaded Baked Potato Salad!

I think you all know of my never-ending love of bacon and cheese, but just in case: I love bacon and cheese, forever and ever, Amen.

I mean, let’s be real. Who doesn’t?? Vegans. And that’s probably the end of the list.

So, I took potato salad and turned it into this loaded baked potato salad. You guys are going to love all of the flavors going on in here!

Potato salad in my family usually just means cold potato chunks, mayo, boiled eggs, and some pickle relish. It’s delicious like that, it really is.

I would never, ever turn down a big ol’ bowl full of my grandma’s classic potato salad.

But, you know what? Sometimes you have to experiment. Sometimes you have to try new things. Sometimes, just every now and then, you have to add bacon and cheese to your potato salad.

I saw this recipe at One Ordinary Day last week and I knew immediately that I was making it for Sunday dinner at my parent’s house. It didn’t matter that hashbrown casserole was already on the menu. If some potatoes are good, more potatoes are better. That’s the truth.

The only thing I changed from  recipe was to use big baking potatoes and actually bake them instead of boiling them. It is, after all, baked potato salad.
