More About This Recipe
  • You love loaded baked potatoes (and really, who doesn’t?), and you love a classic potato salad—so why not have both? This recipe loads your potato salad up with bacon and cheese, just like your favorite way to eat a baked potato! If you’re interested in a real spin on this version, try using a seasoned sour cream instead of the regular half cup the recipe calls for. Another way to make it different is to swap out the type of cheese you use. This recipe calls for Cheddar, but Monterey-Jack, Colby or pepper jack are flavorful upgrades! Once you try this spin on potato salad, you likely won’t try another version ever again. But in case you like variety, we have plenty of other potato salads for you to try including the classic version.
