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.

  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.
