Granny’s Potato Salad

Why is that Grandma’s make the best salads?  My granny can make an awesome macaroni salad, potato salad and Jello salads.  I enjoy her cooking way to much and I love cooking her recipes. When I make her recipes they never taste exactly like grandmas but they are always close.  
 I guess the saying is true that grandmas bake with love!

Granny’s Potato Salad
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1 5lb bag potatoes
  • 7 large eggs
  • 1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbed
  • 3 cups regular Mayo
  • ⅓ cup mustard
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp season salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 pickles, optional
  1. Wash and boil potatoes as a whole. Start boiling eggs, when done cut eggs open and dice setting aside the yolk. While you are cooking the eggs and potatoes start cooking your bacon, saving about 1 Tbsp of oil. When potatoes are done and cooled cut into cubes and place into a big bowl. In a separate bowl add the egg yolk, bacon oil, mayo, mustard, onion powder, vinegar, season salt and pepper and mix until combine. Add to the potatoes and stir gently until completely covered add pickles at this time if desired.
  2. Serve nice and chilled.
