Red Skin Potato Salad

Ingredients:
2 pounds clean, scrubbed new red potatoes
6 eggs
1 pound bacon (or pre-cooked bacon pieces)
1 onion, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 cups mayonnaise (or 1 C mayo & 1C sour cream – I usually use less than a total of 2C)
salt and pepper to taste
cucumber & green pepper, chopped, optional

Directions:
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and set in the refrigerator to cool.

2. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.

3. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.

4. Chop the cooled potatoes, leaving skin on. Add to a large bowl, along with the eggs, bacon, onion and celery. Add mayonnaise, salt and pepper to taste. Chill for an hour before serving.

Servings: 12
