Roasted Potato Salad with Bacon

I make potato salad at almost every cookout or family gathering we have. I thought I would try something different and make a roasted potato salad with bacon. Who doesn’t love bacon?



It made a delicious difference in the taste. Tasted a bit like a baked potato with all the fix in’s, everyone loved it! Here is what I did.

You’ll need:

2 pounds of potatoes I used homegrown small white

3 boiled eggs diced

1/2 stalk of celery diced

1 cup mayonnaise

olive oil salt and pepper

pickles  and onions optional

In a medium size bowl toss your diced potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roasted Potato Salad with Bacon 032

Roast in a preheated 350 F degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender.

 Put them into a clean medium size bowl when cool.

 Mix well and chill for at least 2 hours. I make my potato salad the day before, it always seems to taste better the next day. Enjoy!

    Found this on Pinterest and how great to have a potato salad that I can make in the winter when I want to turn the oven on. Roasted potatoes, what a great start. Adding onions is a must…I may even roast them with the potatoes because I love roasted onions too. No pickles in it for me but I will make it your way to start, but probably will add some grainy mustard, not a lot but we always have some type of mustard in our potato salad.

      I love onions and mustard in my potato salad too. I stopped putting onion in our potato salad because my daughter doesn’t like them. The things wqe do for our children, lol. Thanks for stopping by!
