I don’t know about you, but some days I just need a carb overload to feel better. Not physically, of course, but there is just something about the comfort of food that makes you feel secure and content.
This Loaded Baked Potato Salad has the best of both worlds. A delicious combination of your favorite loaded baked potato recipe that is turned into a summer favorite. But hey, sometimes we just need to indulge and this Loaded Baked Potato Salad definitely brings comfort.
A simple recipe that won’t break the bank is always a plus in our house. Crispy bacon, sharp cheddar cheese, creamy mayo, and your other favorite toppings for a potato come together for a flavor combination that is out of this world. Potato salad is a staple for summer and leveling up your traditional recipe is a necessity after being quarantined from our loved ones for over two years.
When you go to cookouts you look for the deviled eggs, hot dogs, hamburgers, and potato salad! We all love those delicious homemade comfort meals that our favorite aunt or grandmother made every get-together. Now that you are older, the torch has been passed and you have a recipe to outshine everyone. Your elders will truly be impressed with your skills once this Loaded Baked Potato Salad hits the table.
Can you use a different type of potato?
You certainly can swap out the russet potato for sweet potato if you want a healthier option. The sweet potato does not hold its firmness as much as you get with the Russett potato so you will have more of a mash than a sturdy potato salad.
How do you properly store leftovers?
Since this Loaded Baked Potato Salad has mayo and cheese you want to ensure it is properly secured in an air-tight container in your fridge. You should be able to enjoy it for the next 3-4 days; if it lasts that long!
