Bacon and Egg Potato Salad myfavouritepastime.com_2526Do you love eating lots fried crispy bacon? Are there days when you say, ‘the heck with it’ and just spoil yourself without thinking about the extra calories? Then this is the salad for you. You need lots of bacon, potatoes and eggs.

Bacon and Egg Potato Salad myfavouritepastime.com_2527I got the recipe from the Food Network Magazine, July/Aug 2013, tweaked it a little, prepared and had if for lunch. It was very filling and delicious. The sort of salad I would eat once a week if I weren’t watching that ‘bulge around my waist’. I loved it and hope you’ll do too! I hope you’re having a great weekend! Ours, here, is fabulous!

  1. YUM. I think the secret to a good traditional potato salad is hard boiled egg, and you’ve definitely embraced the egg! Bacon and that fabulous dressing just puts it over the top!!!

    1. You know potatoes are so filling. I totally ate it on its own for lunch with some nice green leafy veggies on the side. It was delicious! Enjoy the new week!

  2. I love potatoes and eggs and I’m obsessed with bacon! I’m so going to make this salad when I’m back from Italy. Right now, I’m watching every single calory I’m ingurgitating in order to fit into my dress at my cousin’s wedding. 😉

    1. Ha ha enjoy your cousin’s wedding. I wish I had a wedding coming up, I would stop eating all these fatty and carb full foods for a change!
      Have a great weekend!
