I wasn't real sure what to do about this one. I have the exact same recipe with one difference. So, I have decided not to post mine. Here is my difference - I don't bake mine. I mix it up and serve it cold, the ingredients are all the same. It is my husband's favorite potato salad. So either way - it works. Bake it if you have time or try it my way and just serve it cold.

I thought that this was by far the best potato salad I have ever tried. I added mushrooms and some hot pepper too. It was great! Oh ya, I tried it hot and cold, and the hot was better . . . but it was still damn good cold :).

I made this as my contribution to a Father's Day cookout at a friend's house. There were eight really happy dads that loved this salad - went perfect with steak on the grill! I increased the bacon to 10 slices, and used Miracle Whip as stated, which I thought complimented the other ingredients perfectly. Not so sure mayo would have had enough flavor. THANK YOU!
UPDATED TO ADD: I've had to make this so many times now for cookouts, I've got the quantity of ingredients to use down pat :) For a disposable 13x9" foil pan, I use a 5lbs bag of red potatoes (unpeeled), 15 slices pre-cooked bacon, and all other ingedients are multiplied by 1.5. I bake it for 10 minutes, and the consistency is just perfect once cooled, and I serve at room temperature.
