My family, especially John, loves this potato salad. It's not really much different than some others, but they love the bacon in it! I always leave the skins on though... More vitamins!

How to Make My Bacon Potato Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Fry bacon until crispy. Drain well on plate lined with paper towels. Crumble into small pieces.
  2. TIP: Using a large sharp knife, cut the strips of bacon in small pieces before frying. Saves the crumbling later.
  3. Cook potatoes in large pot of salted boiling water until just tender. Drain and add to large mixing bowl.
  4. Add the celery, onion, bacon & seasonings.
  5. Add the mayonnaise. Mix well, adding more mayo if needed to make the salad creamy.
  6. Refrigerate an hour or two to let the flavors blend.
