Red Potatoes with celery, onion, hard boiled eggs, bacon, Miracle Whip or mayonnaise and seasonings made for a delicious side dish with our meal or even for a potluck. Using red potatoes is a nice change from using regular white potatoes and adding bacon gives this potato salad an extra special flavor.

Cook the bacon and crumble it. I always keep 2#’s

of bacon that is already cooked and crumbled in

my freezer so all I have to do is add it to my recipes.

bacon and potatoes to a large bowl.

    • This was the first time I put bacon in my potato salad and used red potatoes for potato salad. I thought it was delicious but my hubby didn’t like it with bacon, imagine that! It worked out great though because it was more for me. 🤣
