potatoe salad w/eggs? Mon, 03/28/05 12:31 PM (permalink)
It seems alot of people make potatoe salad using hard boiled eggs, thats NOT for me.. We took the family version to the neighborhood easter egg hunt and were deluged with requests for the recipe.. WARNING... NOT for the cholesterol conscious!!! Start with chunked potatoes, boiled till fork tender and cooled, brown one pound of bacon per 5 pounds potatoes, drain and reserve drippings, in a couple tblspns bacon drippings sweat one large chopped onion. Take 2/3 of a 32oz jar of miricle whip add 1/2 cup bacon drippings and 1-2 tspns white vinager and shake well (adjust drippings to taste) crumble bacon and mix all ingrediants.. chill before serving... take it UP A NOTCH by adding crumbled Blu Cheese....

    I'm not sure what your point about excluding the eggs is (I put egg YOLK, mashed, in my regular potato salad), but your recipe sounds like an interesting combination of traditional German warm potato salad and the more typical cold potato salad. It may not be for the cholesterol conscious, but I've eaten and enjoyed warm potato salad with that much bacon and bacon drippings in it for years.

        The potato salad I make, I use hard boiled eggs and Love It! I crumble the yolks, and fine dice the whites... I'll make a 5lb batch and it's normally gone within 24 hours... Recipe available if ya want it... Way different from the norm...

          Your recipe sounds great.
          I am going to try it. I
          agree, my potato salad has no
          eggs and definetly no relish.
          I would substitute Hellmans mayo
          but thats my preference.
