  1. Place red potatoes and sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes; drain.
  2. Transfer potato mixture to a large bowl and refrigerate until cooled, about 30 minutes.
  3. Mix mayonnaise, red onion, horseradish, mustard, olive oil, bacon, garlic powder, sea salt, and white pepper, respectively, into potato mixture; garnish with paprika.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • While the potatoes are cooking, I dice the onion and gather the ingredients. After potatoes are cooked and chilled, I add everything together. It usually takes about an hour all total with cooking, chilling, and mixing.
  • I usually just add a pinch of the garlic powder, salt, and pepper and then, after I mix everything, I add more to taste. When I am satisfied with the way it tastes, I put it into a bowl and sprinkle the paprika on top.
