Kittencal's Potato Salad With Eggs

Prep Time

Ready In

"You won't find this anywhere else but here, I recently developed this potato salad and is now my favorite! Bacon or ham can be used both are great but I think I prefer bacon. There are a few steps to this salad so you may want to boil the eggs and cook the potatoes a day in advance, you can even mix up the dressing a day ahead. This is an uber creamy salad if you don't like your tater salads creamy then you may want to reduce the dressing amount. Four cups dry uncooked small shells or macaroni may be used in place of the potatoes -- DO NOT use any other brand than Hidden Valley dry ranch, trust me I have tried other brands and the flavor is not as good!"

I made up a double batch to make for a wedding barbecue I was catering and the crowd loved it! I got several recipe requests, so you know it's good! I added ham for the meat and will try it with bacon another time. I am adding this to my catering menu as a side and I am sure it will be enjoyed for many years to come by all my customers as well as here at home.

We really liked this tater salad, although I am hesitant to make it too often because of the sodium content in the ranch dressing packet and ham, however, we will have it from time to time.

My dad and I made this recipe over the weekend, the only thing I didn't like about it was that I couldn't stop eating it. Very good salad. I might try miracle whip next time.

My mother would sometimes make a one dish meal from salads.Sometimes a leafy salad, other times macaroni, and everything she had went into it,especially meat! I had this in mind when I visited my daughter and grand-daughter this past weekend. We went to the grocery store (cause Papa was treating)and bought everthing we would need for this recipe. Then we went home and started to create! We followed the recipe to the letter except we used cavatappi macaroni and added red bell pepper for some color and cuccumber for taste enhancement. We folded,stirred,and all that stuff, and then chilled it for dinner. AND THEN WE ATE! AND ATE!AND ATE!AND ATE! This is without a doubt the best I ever ate. This is now a new family recipe!(with your permission, of course)
