I bring this dish to an annual Oktoberfest party. Everyone likes it, which ensures our invitation back year after year. There are never any leftovers to bring home. -Dara Luburgh, Sparta, New Jersey


  • 5 pounds red potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, diced
  • 8 hard-boiled large eggs, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound process cheese (Velveeta), cubed


  1. Place potatoes in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  2. In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings.
  3. In a large bowl, gently toss the potatoes, bacon, eggs, onion, salt and pepper. Combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and reserved bacon drippings; add to potato mixture and toss to coat.
  4. Divide half of the mixture between one greased 13x9-in. baking dish and one 9-in. square baking dish. Top with half of the cheese cubes. Repeat layers. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
