  • 2 pounds small potatoes

  • 5 large eggs

  • 3 stalks celery, minced

  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, or to taste

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 4 slices bacon

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Place potatoes in a pot with enough water to cover; bring to a boil. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and cool in ice water.

  2. While potatoes are cooking, place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let eggs stand in hot water for 15 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water, cool under cold running water, and peel.

  3. Place 3 eggs into a large bowl and mash them in the bowl with a fork. Stir in celery, mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper until well combined. Set aside.

  4. Cook bacon slices in the microwave until crisp, about 4 minutes. Crumble 2 bacon slices into egg-mayonnaise mixture.

  5. Peel and chop cooled potatoes; stir into the bowl until salad is evenly combined. Slice remaining 2 eggs and arrange on top of salad. Crumble remaining 2 bacon slices over egg slices, then sprinkle with parsley.


You can also cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
