Paula's Bacony Potato Salad


If you have been following my blog you already know how much I like Paula Deen. Her recipes ROCK! I was looking through her magazine the other day for some cool recipes to make during our hot July days and saw this one. I liked the idea of adding cheese and bacon...and no eggs.

We really enjoyed this....it tasted like a loaded bake potato! I did make a few changes in the recipe...sorry Paula...but I used low fat mayo and sour cream. If it was this good with low fat,  I can only imagine how great it must be with regular! I also cut the recipe in half...way too much for the two of us....and I also used baby reds, leaving the skin on. I really liked the texture it added!
