Bacon and Cheddar Potato Salad

Total Time

I love potato salad, and I love cheese and bacon -- this is a combination of all of them. Can serve at room temperature or chilled (I like it chilled best!). Time does not include chilling time if you choose to go that route.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 4-quart saucepan, cover potatoes with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain and cool slightly.
  2. While potatoes are cooking, combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add potatoes and toss to coat. Season, if desired, with salt and ground black pepper.

I scaled back for 4 serves, as I was hoping to have some left over but the 3 of us gobbled up the lot as part of our dinner. I left the skin on the potatoes and used Carisma potatoes which are a low GI potato. Thank you iewe, made for I Recommend tag game and recommended by Boomette.

Made for ZWT6 mainly because we love potato salad, but DH does not favor those that use pickles or pickle relish. Like you, I also love the combo of cheese & bacon in potato salad. I made a half recipe as written for 2 of us except I left out the milk as it was fine w/o it. I did use the vinegar & added a bit of salt + a generous amt of lemon pepper as a pers pref. We liked this a lot, iewe. Thx for posting the recipe for us. *Edited to Add* that 1 of the beauties of potato salad is that it can be made ahead, left to chill & almost always improves w/it. *But* care should be taken not to add the cheese till just b4 serving to avoid a mushy cheese effect. :-)
