Red Skinned Potato Salad
July 01, 2011

Is the amount of potatoes correct; or is there a typo? 2 cups of Mayo, 6 eggs and a pound of bacon for only 2 lbs of potatoes? That seems excessive to me. To start I'll try 1 cup of Mayo... (Hellman's of course), 3 eggs and 1/2 a pound of crispy bacon, I can always add more if I think it's needed; or I could probably use 4 to 5 lbs of potatoes. I'll post an update after I make this recipe. UPDATE: I made this recipe today, July 3rd. As written I found 2 lbs of potatoes just wasn't the proper ratio to the amounts of mayonnaise, eggs and bacon. I wound up using about 5 lbs of potatoes. I also added more celery, 3 ribs, 2 green onions thinly sliced, and a small green pepper, seeded and dice fine. With these additions, the 2 cups of mayonnaise and 6 eggs were the perfect amounts; although next time I would only use 1/2 lb of bacon, 1 lb was still a bit too much. I'm sure this will taste even better tomorrow, for our July 4th cook-out.
