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.

Easy to make and very tasty salad. Got rave review from my party guests. The first time I fried the bacon, it was burnt very quickly in a pre-heated pan and it was not crispy. I subsequently learned that the bacon should be placed in a cold saucepan and get heated up together. That way, there is less oil coming out from the bacon (which causes the burnt) and the bacon will come out crispy.

WOW!! This was excellent. I made to 8 servings and added radishes and celery to it. Thanks for an excellent salad.

Wonderful! Followed the recipe as stated and loved the results. Very pretty with the red potatoes, green onion, and bacon. Not overly saucy and just a hint of mustard. Unlike most potato salad recipes, this makes a small amount. One pound is not a lot of red potatoes. For a cookout or potluck I'd suggest tripling the recipe. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Wow! So simple, so fresh, and so delicious! I only had some of that handy microwave bacon (which worked out just great). I left just a bit of the peel on each potato, doubled up on the egg, and used half mayo and half miracle whip (my secret way of making everyone in the house happy). After draining the potatoes I put them into a glass bowl and let them sit in the fridge for a while, then ran a knife through them randomly several times leaving some very large chunks while also producing some smaller pieces. Loved the texture that it produced! It complimented the large pieces of cumbled bacon, green onion, and sliced egg that made this such a wonderful dish. It looked so good we ate some while it was still a little warm...chilled the rest and finished it off that same day! Super recipe and now our favorite! :)

My mother-in-law makes a potato salad that is very close to this one. She calls it Red Potato Salad. This tasted so great--loved the mustard and smoky bacon flavor. I threw in an extra boiled egg because I needed to use up the carton. Thanks so much, Marie, for posting this.

First of all I must say,that I've never had a potato salad with bacon in it.And second I've never found a potato salad with mustard in it that I liked,until now.:)This is the way that I made this wonderful potato salad.I made this recipe for six people.Instead of of boiling the potatoes whole,I cut them into medium bite-sized pieces,then boiled them until almost fork tender.I continued with the rest of the recipe as written,except I added no onions(just don't like them in potato salad)My family and I felt that this needed just a little bit more pepper.This was so good,it will be made again,Thank you for posting."Keep Smiling:)"
