Have I mentioned it’s been a bad summer for grilling yet? Because it struck again yesterday. We had plans to have a BBQ on the deck – and then it drizzled all day! What a kill joy.
I had bookmarked this recipe at the beginning of the summer and thought I was finally getting my perfect opportunity to make it! This is a really fun side – a mash-up of potato salad and a loaded baked potato. It’s the perfect cookout dish. (Even if you’re eating inside!) I’m sure this will be making repeat appearances on our summer table.
Loaded Baked Potato Salad
(slightly adapted from Will Cook for Smiles)
Serves 8-10 as a side
2 1/2 lbs. potatoes
1 lb. bacon, cooked crispy
1/2 c. chopped Green Onion
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 c. mayo
1/2 c. sour cream
1 T. minced fresh dill weed
Cut the potatoes into 1/2″ cubes. Add them to a pot and cover with cold water. Cook until just barely fork tender. Drain and rinse under cold water until cool.
Combine the potatoes, bacon crumbles, green onions and cheddar cheese in a bowl. Add in the mayo, sour cream, salt, pepper, and dill and toss until evenly coated. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Garnish with additional green onions or bacon crumbles if desired.
