This is a creamy potato salad, made with bacon and scallions, that tastes just like a baked potato with cheese on top.

I'm not a fan of mayo so typical potato salads don't appeal to me. This new recipe caught my eye w/the use of sour cream in place of mayo. I halved the recipe and chose to use cheater bacon bits rather than fry bacon. This. Is. So. Good!! It truly tastes like a baked potato. You could personalize this with any of your favorite baked potato toppings. I also chose to leave the skins on all my potatoes and chopped BEFORE boiling (seemed easier to me). THANKS for the recipe; this one's a keeper! Read More

I had a baked potato salad at a German meat market and I've been trying to duplicate it for months...THIS is what I wanted. Served chilled or room temp it's still fresh and flavorful. My favorite picnic accompaniment and goes well with a nice roast too. Thanks for this one! Read More

I thought this was good but for whatever reason the batch I made turned out a little bit dry. I doubled the recipe but otherwise followed it as directed. It received good reviews from everyone at my Easter table. Thanks for sharing your recipe littlepeepsbrude! Read More
