Poh-tay-toe, Puh-tah-toe

I am quite picky when it comes to potato salad. Quite picky when it comes to most food, actually. It’s part of my charm. But…

A couple of weeks ago (I have no clue when it really was; I’ve lost all track of time) we ate at Cadillac Zak & Cadillac MaMa’s for dinner. It’s no secret that Cadillac MaMa is fabulous in the kitchen, and this meal was no exception. She made some potato salad that was delicious! I made it a while later for some friends, and everyone loved it. I thought I’d share. 

Cadillac MaMa’s Potato Salad
(I halved it when I made it for a smaller crowd.)
2 bags of new potatoes
2 packets Hidden Valley Ranch mix (you can probably use an off brand, but I like the real thing)
8 eggs
6 strips bacon, chopped
1 small jar mayonnaise
1/2 cup green onion, chopped
Crock pot

  • Quarter and boil the new potatoes until they are tender, but not so much that the skins are falling off
  • Fry the bacon (don’t drain; Cadillac Mama drains hers, but trust me on this one)
  • Hard boil and chop the eggs
  • Set crock pot to warm
  • Add boiled potatoes, eggs, and cooked bacon (with grease) to the crock pot
  • Pour dry ranch packets over and stir
  • Add mayonnaise while stirring to blend ranch seasoning. Taste as you go, you might not need the whole jar
  • Once the ranch is well blended, add green onions and stir
  • Leave it to warm in the crock pot until ready to serve

I’m so grateful Cadillac MaMa shared this recipe with me! It’s delicious and easy–not to mention, Mr. Gray loves potato salad!
