Bacon deviled egg potato salad is an incredibly good recipe that tastes just like a combination of deviled eggs and rich potato salad. And it really does taste like deviled eggs!

Serve this recipe alongside barbecued ribs or grilled burgers or steak for a summer cookout.

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds red round potatoes
  • 6 eggs (hard cooked, cut in half)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup celery (thinly sliced)
  • 1/3 cup green onions (sliced)
  • 6 slices bacon (cooked crisp and crumbled)

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.

  3. Add the potatoes and boil until tender, about 20 to 30 minutes. Check the potatoes constantly at 20 minutes. When you can stick a fork into the potato easily and it almost slides off the fork, the potato is done.

  4. Place the cooked potatoes on a wire rack until cool enough to handle. Don't let the potatoes cool completely because if they are still warm when they are put into the dressing, they will absorb more flavor.

  5. While the potatoes are cooking, remove the egg yolks from the hard-cooked eggs and place them in a large bowl.

Tips

  • While boiling the potatoes, keep in mind that the potatoes won't be all the same size, check them occasionally. You'll remove the smaller potatoes first.
  • Be sure to use Miracle Whip, as this ingredient is slightly sweeter than mayonnaise and really adds a nice tang to the recipe.
