Loaded Potato Salad
2 pounds potatoes [ I like Yukon Gold, but red or Idaho are fine too]
1 cup non-fat Greek Yogurt
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp onion powder
4-6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled [ 1/3 cup bacon bits work too]
3 green onions , chopped
1.5 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3 or 4 [I like a good amount of egg in my salad, so I use 4 ] hard-boiled eggs
1 or 2 Tablespoon[s] spicy mustard
1/2 tsp salt
ground black pepper, to taste
*Cube potatoes [1-1.5 inch cubes] and place potatoes and eggs in a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium heat simmer 10 minutes [ start timer once water has come to a boil].
*Transfer potatoes and hard boiled eggs into a bowl of ice-cold water to cool completely.
*Peel and chop eggs, add back to potatoes
***while potatoes and eggs are boiling, place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes.; drain on paper towel.
*crumble and add to potatoes
Add mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, sharp Cheddar cheese, mustard, scallions, salt, and ground black pepper to potatoes then stir to coat.
Cover and refrigerate. Or eat warm, it's delicious!!
