If you follow Yumology on Instagram (P.S. your should totally follow Yumology on Instagram), you probably saw us post a couple of LIVE updates of this recipe on the 4th of July.

It was a HUGE hit!

So many potato salads taste the same and try to mimic your favorite deli version of this iconic American summertime side dish. In typical fashion, Yumology decided to kick things up a notch. We wanted to incorporate fresh bursts of flavor with rich salty bacon and tart whole grain mustard.

Give this one a shot at your next BBQ and let us know how it turned out.

3 baked potatoes (make sure you bake them first to soften them)
6 slices of center cut bacon (diced)
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup of sliced green onions
1 cup of halved cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup of sour cream
2 tbsp of whole grain mustard

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Dice your baked potatoes into bite sized cubes and toss them into a baking dish with your diced bacon.
  3. Sprinkle the black pepper on top and bake the bacon and potatoes at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until the bacon is crisp and the potatoes have browned.
  4. When the bacon and potatoes are finished cooking use a slotted spoon to remove them from the baking dish and strain on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess fat.
  5. Allow the potatoes and bacon to cool slightly then add them to a bowl with the sour cream and mustard.
  6. Toss the potatoes and bacon in the dressing.
  7. Add the green onions and cherry tomatoes and toss again.
  8. Serve alongside your favorite BBQ dish.

This is definitely a fancy bistro version of what your momma used to make. Treat momma to something new and exciting the next time she visits.

Enjoy, Yummies!


  1. A of all: I love potatoes. We're getting a crap ton in our CSA lately because they're in season and there's simply nothing better than fresh new potatoes.

    B of all: I live for potato salad. Or at least really like it. My mom's is the best.

    C of all: You didn't put mayo in yours. And that now makes YOURS the best because mayonnaise is creepy and gross.

    D of all: Bacon. As I much on my bourbon soaked cherries and stalk your blog, the only thing that would make my day better is bacon. So thank you.

    PS. I totally follow Yumology on Instagram.

  2. You had me at bacon...and then I was sold when I saw that you just put it all together to bake. No cooking the bacon first and then adding it, WIN!
