Loaded Baked Potato Salad

I revamped my mother's potato salad recipe to taste more like baked potatoes with all the fixin's, which I love. It's now the most requested dish at family gatherings. Even my mother asked for the recipe! —Jackie Deckard, Solsberry, Indiana

    When I make twice baked potatoes this is almost the same recipe-no milk used. Also try green onions in this salad version and no pickles. Yummy

    Perfect for a large hungry crowd! When I make it again, which I wiil, I would half the sweet onion and use sharp cheddar. Just personal preference. Tastes even better on day two. ????????

    Made no adjustments because I wanted to make it by the recipe first time. I was not disappointed. Took it to work for a staff lunch. Very well received by all. This will become our new favourite potato salad I think, even my fussy boys, who hate roast potatoes absolutely loved this one.

    I made this salad with high expectations. Was disappointed, my daughter liked it but my grandaughter didn't like it at all. Thought maybe it would taste better warm. Gave it to my daughter to take home.

    This is the best potato salad I have ever made. I did scale it down to 10 servings and it was still delicious. Thanks Jackie for the awesome recipe.

    I brought this potato salad to a potluck and it disappeared quickly! It was quite good, with the bacon and cheese making it extra special!

    This potato salad was excellent! I'll definitely be making it again. The recipe does make a lot, so it's great to take as a dish to BBQs. I didn't have pickles on hand, but I put in a tablespoon or so of dill weed instead.
