We went to a cook out yesterday at my cousins house. After a long drive after getting lost my cousins husband rescued us and took us back to the house. They grilled huge hamburgers and brats and I made a crowd pleaser baked potato salad. Instead of a mayo base this uses sour cream. This is great for the outside weather and you don't have to worry about it turning like mayo based potato salad. I wanted to buy some chives to put on top but could not find any at my Mom's grocery store.
5 lb bag of red potatoes
1 container sour cream
1 cup shredded cheese 1/4 cup reserved for topping
1/2 cup Oscar Meyer Real bacon bits
salt and pepper
fresh chives(if you can find them at a reasonable price)
Cut the eyes off of the potatoes and cut in half if large potatoes. Boil for 25 minutes. Insert fork to see if they are done. They should be fork tender but not falling apart. Drain out water and cool. Once touchable cut into cubes and place in a large bowl. Add sour cream (a little at a time), bacon, and cheese. Add salt and pepper. Cover and let sit in the fridge for a few hours. Taste for seasoning. I made this the night before and added extra sour cream before serving. Top with reserved cheese and extra bacon bits.
