This is my maternal grandmother's recipe for potato salad. She grew up in Arkansas during the Depression. I love this recipe, it reminds me of good family times together. And, well, BACON!
- 5 lbs potatoes
- 2 onions (yellow or white, not sweet)
- 1 (10 ounce) jar dill pickle relish
- 8 eggs
- 1 lb bacon
- 1 1⁄2 cups Miracle Whip
Directions See How It's Made
- Hardboil the eggs. Let cool, peel, cut in half and scoop out the yolks into a bowl. Chop the whites finely and put in a large bowl.
- Peel and chop the potatoes into bite-size pieces. Boil in well-salted water until tender. Cool, then add the potatoes to the bowl with the egg whites.
- Peel and chop the onions, finely. Mix with the entire jar of pickle relish and add to potato mixture.
- Fry the entire pound of bacon until crispy, then crumble or chop. Add to potato mixture.
- Mix the egg yolks and Miracle Whip until smooth, then blend into potato mixture.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
