Recipe by Leslie in Texas
Comfort food at it's best: potatoes, Velveeta cheese and bacon! YUM! Definitely not for the calorie counters, this is our "once in a blue moon" splurge! Goes great with ham. I usually use just the bacon and sprinkle the top with sliced green onions, tops and bottoms, just before serving. Originally from a newspaper article showcasing Yukon Gold potatoes, I've substituted russet potatoes at times.
- 2 lbs yukon gold potatoes
- 1 1⁄2-2 cups mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1 sweet onion (such as vidalia, Texas 1015, or Maui, finely chopped)
- 1 (16 ounce) package Velveeta cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- salt and pepper
- 4 slices bacon (chopped or 1/4 cup pimento green olives, sliced, or both)
