My husband was gone for 4 weeks to St. Louis this last month for Medical School. He got home on Saturday and my girls (and myself) are so excited to have him back. While he was gone, I decided to keep myself busy so I wouldn’t miss him too much. One of the days I decided to redo my family room. I had old pictures of my girls so decided to go shopping for matching outfits and took pictures of my girls by myself. They are not the most professional… but I LOVED how they turned out! They are just growing up so fast! My little baby is already 8 months old!
Now on to the delicious part…. THE FOOD! This recipe is a play off of my Mom’s Potato Salad. I love my Mom’s potato salad but this Loaded Baked Potato Salad is going to be my new side dish at our family cookouts!
Baked Potato Salad
8 medium Potatoes
1 cup fat free sour cream
1/2 cup miracle whip (you can use mayo… but I really don’t like that stuff)
12 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 bunch of Green Onions, chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Salt and Pepper to taste
Wash and cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces (I left the peel on). Cover with water and boil until fork tender. It will take about 20 minutes. Check them at 10 minutes and ever few minutes after that. You don’t want them overcooked or they will become mushy.
Drain and rinse with cool water. Drain again. Put them in a large separate bowl and place them in the fridge.
Mix the miracle whip and sour cream together in a small bowl. Add to the cooled potatoes, green onions, 3/4 of the crumbled bacon and 1 cup of cheese. Salt and pepper to taste
Top with the other cup of shredded cheese and bacon and serve!
I also added some green onions on top just for fun. 🙂
