  • 2 pounds clean, scrubbed new red potatoes

  • 6 large eggs

  • 1 pound bacon

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped

  • 2 cups mayonnaise

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and allow to cool.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
