Potato Salad with Crispy Bacon Recipe

How to Make Potato Salad with Crispy Bacon


  1. Cook potatoes in the microwave following packet directions. Stand for 1 minute then transfer to a colander. Rinse with cold water and set aside to cool.
  2. While potatoes are cooling, preheat a grill on medium-high. Place bacon in a single layer on a rack on a grill tray or large baking tray, lined with foil.
  3. Combine maple syrup and chipotle seasoning in a small bowl. Brush bacon on both sides with mixture. Grill bacon for 2-3 minutes on each side until crisp and golden. Set aside to cool.
  4. Cut cooled potatoes into 3cm pieces and place into a large bowl. Add two-thirds of the shallots.
  5. Place mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice and mustard in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix until well combined. Add mayonnaise mixture to potatoes. Toss to evenly coat.
  6. Roughly chop half of the bacon and add to potato mixture. Add eggs and gently stir to combine.
  7. Spoon potato salad into a serving bowl. Top with shards of remaining bacon. Sprinkle with the rest of green onions and serve.
