Baked potato salad

Everybody's got their favorite potato salad, but it only occurred to me last week that I never put mine on here to put in my memories. I'm not actually a fan of most potato salads. I find them too sweet or too creamy. This one isn't. In fact, this is one of the few ways I can even get Alex to eat potatoes. I like it because it's got all the flavors I love without being heavy.


8 Russet potatoes
1 lb bacon
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup sour cream
½ cup mayonnaise
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Scrub and cut up the potatoes in bite-size pieces. Cover with water and boil for 20-25 minutes, or until fork-tender. Do not overcook.
2. Drain and cool the potatoes.
3. Cook and crumble the bacon.
4. Mix the sour cream and mayonnaise together.
5. Combine cooled potatoes, bacon, onion, and cheese.
6. Stir in sour cream/mayo mixture. Salt and pepper to taste.
