Need a prize-winning potato salad recipe? Look no further than this incredible Baked Potato Salad that won first prize at the 2011 South Beach Wine & Food Festival Idaho Potato Side Dish Challenge.

What You'll Need:
  • 3 pounds large Idaho potatoes, washed
  • 1 (16-ounce) container sour cream (see Notes)
  • 5 scallions (green onions), sliced
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (see Notes)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 3-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bake potatoes for about 1 hour, or until fork-tender. Cool potatoes at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  3. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes and place in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss gently until mixed well; place in prepared casserole dish. 
  4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until warm in center.
  • We suggest topping each portion with a bit more sour cream and sliced scallions before serving.
  • To lighten this up, you can substitute lower-fat varieties of sour cream and cheese, and use turkey bacon in place of the traditional favorites.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I make this recipe adding a can of chili, ooh its really good.

I would add some chopped hard boiled eggs.

Very flavorful! A bit on the dry side but I will make again.

This recipe is easy and one of the best tasting use of potatoes. Great with Bratts or as a side with an Easter Ham.

I really like your wonderful recipes I eat low carb most of the time so I just make a few adjustments and I am good to go soma times I make them your way and just enjoy thank you

Looking for a recipe that had biscuits and ham that you baked was on tv one day i think in march help

It doesn't say to peel them anywhere , so I would say unpeeled . I never peel my potatoes , the skins are good for you .

The potatoes, skinned or un-skinned?
