Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Since this weekend is Memorial Day, I know many of you will be breaking out your grills and having some fun family barbeques. I want to share my favorite things to bring to a barbeque, Loaded Baked Potato Salad and Kings Hawaiian buns.

With my hubby being a restaurant manager, getting holidays off is pretty much a long shot. We usually celebrate or go out before or after the holiday. This week, we decided to have a family barbeque early since he is working all weekend.
We went to the park to grill some burgers and hot dogs…yum, yum! Of course, hubby wanted one of his favorite salads, Loaded Baked Potato Salad. Actually this one would be his number one favorite salad. Anything that has bacon, could be safely considered one of his favorites.

I really wanted a Black and Blue Burger, which is a seasoned burger with blue cheese and bacon strips. The best buns for any burger are Kings Hawaiian, hands down. The little man actually polished off a bun before his hot dog was even ready. I had to hide the rest of them because I’m pretty sure that he is capable of finishing the whole bag. Yes, they are that good.


Baked Potato Salad
  • 2 lbs Red potatoes
  • 1 lb fresh Bacon (crispy baked)
  • ½ cup chopped Green Onion
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ⅓ cup Mayo
  • ½ cup Sour Cream
  • Salt/Pepper
  • 1 tbs minced fresh Dill Weed
  1. Boil the potatoes until fully done but, not falling apart (don't overcook.) Cool before cutting. (Peeling the potatoes is a personal preference.)
  2. Cube the cooled potatoes into about ¼ inch cubes. Place into a mixing bowl.
  3. Chop the cooked, crispy bacon bits and add it to the potatoes.
  4. Add the cheese, chopped green onion, salt, pepper and dill weed. Mix the ingredients.
  5. Add mayo and sour cream. Mix well until all incorporated.
  6. Refrigerate before serving. You can garnish with some more green onion and bacon bits before serving
