Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and set in the refrigerator to cool.

  • Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water; cool in ice water. Peel, then chop into small, bite-sized pieces.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels, then crumble.

  • Chop cooled potatoes, leaving skin on. Add to a large bowl, along with eggs, bacon, onion, and celery. Stir in mayonnaise, salt, and pepper. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour before serving.
