They call it...Tater Salad
« on: August 17, 2008, 07:26:27 AM »
Just came across this and made it last night...mmmmmmmmmmm.

2 lbs small red potatoes (cut in half if you like, or 1-1/2 inch chunks)
1/2 to 1 lb bacon, depending on tastes
1 cup mayonaise
1/4 cup mustard (preferably dijon)
1 large onion, diced fine
2 celery stalks, chopped fine
4 eggs
1-1/2 tsp paprika

Boil potatoes for 15 minutes, drain and set in refrigerator to cool.
Place eggs in water, heat to boiling, remove from heat for 12-15 minutes, then cool, peel, and chop.
Cook bacon and crumble.

Combine all ingredients in bowl, mix well, place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour (I recommend 2).

Serves 12.

Everything?

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

That looks like it might be good, but $17 a pound?

They wouldn't be selling it if somebody didn't like it.

Well, if bacon is good on a donut, then this tater salad recipe should be finished off with chocolate chips ;)

Crumbled bacon in tater salad eh?

I may just have to try that.  I prefer Miracle Whip over Mayo when I make it though.

Extra zing.

My tater salad is similar. I also added 1/2 cup sour cream and 3 teaspoons horseradish to it. Season salt,salt and pepper to taste. I love your recipe.
