Bacon and Egg Potato Salad

This is the recipe for my delicious bacon and egg potato salad that ALWAYS gets gobbled up first, and even though it is only a salad, often outshines the main course!

I used to think that this type of salad was only for the summer time, but who am I to restrict such a delicious salad to only the summer months?

For this masterpiece I’m not a stickler about exact measurements so have some fun with it and use as much or as little as your personally like best.

Bacon and Egg Potato Salad

  • Potatoes washed, peeled, cubed and boiled until soft. Poke with a fork to check how hard they are after boiling for around 10 minutes!
  • Bacon that has been cooked and chopped.
  • Soft boiled eggs. Boil water and then insert eggs. Remove from heat and let stand for at least 12 minutes. Let cool and then remove shell and break apart with a fork.
  • Green onions, chopped [whites and chives]
  • Broccoli, stems removed and cut into smaller pieces.
  • Sometimes I like to add orange or yellow chopped peppers too.
  • Cheese of you choice to grate into salad.

For the creamy sauce I typically use a concoction of mayo, a little dijon mustard, a little caesar dressing [homemade or store bought], salt & pepper and some dry dill. Start with 1/2 a cup mayo, add a lil’ squirt of mustard and caesar and then add your spices and see how it tastes. Alter this to suit your own tastes.

  • Mix potatoes, eggs, bacon, green onions, broccoli and cheese in a large bowl while potatoes are still warm. Grate cheese of your choice throughout salad. Pour as much or as little creamy mixture over potatoes that you like and enjoy! Enjoy while still warm, or chill to enjoy later.

We had a friend over recently and while he was reaching for seconds of this wonderful salad, he had a chance to say that it was BY FAR the best potato salad he has ever had…which then prompted another man in the house to follow suit 😛
