G’s Infamous Loaded Potato Salad

Potato Salad

 


Who’s G you ask? Well that’s me. My grandkids don’t call me Grandma, they call me G.  When I first became a grandma, I thought I was way.way.way too young to be called that. So, I modernized it to G.  I didn’t want to just name this some boring ole potato salad, so my hubs suggested that I name it this.

 

I am sharing with you my infamous loaded potato salad.  People who know me will freak out when they see this on the www.  This is the most requested dish I make for any get together.  In fact, it’s desired at every get together we have, I just don’t make it for every one. Geesh, give a girl a break. Am I right?

 

If you like potato salad, you will love.love.love this.  It is totally customizable if you want. But I’m thinking the ONLY reason you would customize this recipe would be if you can’t eat one of the ingredients due to an allergy. 🙂 

 

This potato salad is good with burgers, hot dogs, briskit, sausage, brats, basically any BBQ or cookout!!  So, what are you waiting for?  Go make you some!!

 

Rock on!

Instructions
  1. Cut potatoes to about 1" or so. You don't want them too small or when you're mixing everything together, you won't have any potato chunks left.
  2. Boil Potatoes & Eggs HINT: I boiled my eggs the night before. However, here's a cool tip - you can put your eggs in with your potatoes and after they've boiled as long as you desire, remove the eggs and continue boiling the Potatoes.
  3. Cook the bacon while the potatoes are boiling. I baked mine for 12 minutes at 350. You can cook yours however you like.
  4. Dice the celery
  5. Dice the onion
  6. Chop the boiled eggs
  7. Break up the bacon into small pieces
  8. Drain the potatos and let sit for 1/2 - 1 hour. This will allow them to "set". If you don't wait, you will have mushy potato salad. Using a potato masher, mash bout 5-6 times.
  9. Add the celery, onion, bacon, eggs, pickle juice, salt, pepper & paprika.
  10. Add the mayo, miracle whip &mustard.
  11. Stir, stir, stir. This is some thick/heavy stuff here. You will need some muscle 😉
Recipe Notes

Serve if you like it warm. Refrigerate for a few hours to overnight if you like it cold. Like me!
