Simple Man

Potato salad never goes out of style when it comes to delicious game day tailgating. Bacon-Ranch Potato Salad merges two fan-favorite combinations in one simple to make salad. Potatoes from a 5-pound bag provide a good size when boiling them whole. Expect to use about 4 to 5 when preparing the recipe & chill the salad before serving so the dressing fully develops. Pair the dish with Honey-Bourbon Beer Can Chicken or Peach Sweet Tea Ribs & be certain to add Classic Spinach-Artichoke Dip for a starter & M&M-Chocolate Chip Cookies for an undeniable sweet victory. Look for my pointers on How To Boil Eggs & get ready to make a winning crowd pleaser.

makes 8 servings

Run The Option

Light mayonnaise can be substituted for regular for equally tasty results.

2 lbs whole Idaho potatoes
1 cup mayonnaise
1 {1-oz} Ranch-style dressing mix
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
3 scallions, sliced
3 celery ribs, sliced
3 hard-cooked eggs, grated
4 thick-cut bacon slices, cooked & crumbled
Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
Garnish: Fresh parsley

Bring the potatoes & water to cover to a boil over Medium-High heat. Reduce the heat to Medium & simmer 30 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain & let stand 15 minutes. Stir together the mayonnaise, the dressing mix, the parsley, the scallions, the celery & the eggs. Peel the warm potatoes from their jackets with a paring knife. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch pieces & fold into the dressing mixture. Do not over mix. Chill at least 1 hour before serving. Sprinkle the bacon over the potato salad just before serving. Season with salt & pepper.

The Extra Point

Serve the potato salad with hamburgers from the grill or try it along side grilled ham & cheese sandwiches.

How To Boil Eggs

Place the eggs in a single layer in a 3-quart saucepan & cover with about 1-inch of water. Bring them to a rolling boil over high heat. Cover them with the lid, turn off the heat & let them stand 7 minutes. Remove the lid & drain in a colander. Place the eggs back into the saucepan. Shake it good so they crack all over then peel them under cool running water. Rinse off any tiny bits of cracked shells. Plunge them into an icy water bath to stop the cooking process.
