  • 2 pounds red skinned potatoes
  • 3/4 heaping cup sour cream
  • 1/4 heaping cup mayonnaise
  • 8 slices large thick cut of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Wash and cut the potatoes into oversized bite-sized pieces. Cover with water and boil until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Do not overcook.
  2. Drain in a colander and let sit for 10 more minutes.
  3. Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, pepper, most of the cheese, and most of the bacon (reserve some cheese and bacon for topping) in a serving bowl. Pour warm potatoes into the bowl and very gently mix until evenly combined.
  4. Top with the extra shredded cheese and bacon and serve.
