I was making potato salad one day and my mother suggested adding bacon. This has become a family favorite, it never lasts long when I make it. The recipe can easily be doubled.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 4 slices bacon, crumbled (or 3-4 tablespoons of real bacon bits)
