Baked Potato Salad with Bacon, Cheddar, and Chives via Yummly

Easy Loaded Baked Potato Salad

I love a good potato recipe — but then, I have a hard time thinking up a bad potato recipe. It’s a difficult food to get wrong, which is part of what makes it such a staple. Baked Potatoes are definitely a beloved dish in lots of households, and mine’s no different. This simple potato salad is inspired by the all-stars of baked potato ingredients: bacon, cheddar, and chives.  It’s a rather indulgent dish, so it’s not one I’d recommend making often, but if a pot luck or picnic is on the horizon, it could be a great dish to bring to the party.

If you want to ease back on the calories, I’d recommend cutting down on the cheese, substituting the mayonnaise with greek yogurt, and swapping out turkey bacon for the bacon. I’ve tried it both ways, and it still tastes great.

Loaded Baked Potato Salad


  • 2 lbs potatoes, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 cup Hellmann's Mayonnaise
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
  • chives, to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Boil your chopped potatoes in salted water over low heat for 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Then, drain them and let them cool.
  • In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise and cheese. Add the potatoes and toss to coat. You can season it with a bit of salt and pepper if desired, though I find that the bacon adds enough salt as it is. Top with fresh chives and crisp bacon! Serve chilled or at room temperature!
