This was a really great potato salad. I thought it could have used some more mustard as it seemed a little bit lacking in flavor when we got to the end. Also I think that I should have cut the potatoes down even more as it was a very rich potato salad. All in all though it went well and was very well loved as it got eaten up. I think in the future I will always add bacon and bacon grease to my potato salad as it was such a nice element especially since it added a little more protein to the salad. Thanks for a great recipe!

This recipe was amazing. The bacon and eggs were the perfect addictions and the mayo and mustard were flavorful but light. The only flaw was that I didn't make enough since everyone devoured it.
