Sharing is caring!

I enjoy being part of the Food Network seasonal food blogger gatherings but have not had a chance to participate in a long time.  Summer is definitely one of my favorite seasons for cooking, and I knew I had to sneak in at least one recipe before we slide into a season of stews and soups.  Here is our new favorite recipe for a baked potato salad.  This recipe would be great for any of your summer dinner parties.

Potato salad has been on my mind for a few weeks now.  I blame it for planning a weekend of camping for Lenny’s birthday.  I had hopes of making a big batch, and bringing it along but last minute I decided to wait.  As soon as we got home, I got back in the kitchen and whipped up a batch.

I LOVE potato salad, all that creamy goodness mashed in with one of my favorite foods.  For this potato salad recipe, I wanted to change things around from how I normally make a potato salad.  I had seen a few recipes floating around for a loaded baked potato salad, and decided to play around with that idea.  I baked the potatoes instead of boiling them, which was a genius ideas as there is no added moisture in the salad.  The dressing is loaded with everything that should be placed in a baked potato;  sour cream, chives, green onions and lots of crispy bacon.

Recipe:  Baked Potato Salad

** serves 4 – 6 people, depending on their appetites


2 pounds russet potatoes, washed, dried and pricked all over with a fork
2 tablespoons red vinegar
1/2 cup mayo
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons chives, finely minced
5 green onions, finely diced
8 strips bacon, cut into small dice

How to:

Preheat the oven to 425.  Wrap the potatoes in foil, and place into the oven, and bake for 45 – 55 minutes.  You will them a little firm but still soft.  Not mushy.

Unwrap the potatoes, set aside and let them cool.

While the potatoes are baking, cook the bacon until crispy.  Place on a paper towel to remove any extra fat.

In a small bowl mix together the vinegar, mayo, sour cream, chives, and onions.  Set aside.

Cut the potatoes into small pieces, place into a serving bowl and then mix in the dressing and half of the bacon.

Garnish with rest of the bacon.

Back in the 90s, my sister and I owned a small restaurant and served a Baked Potato Salad that we ordered from Sysco. It was one of our biggest sellers! This looks like possibly a similar recipe. Can you tell me if this is it?
