  • 4 potatoes peeled, cubed
  • 4 potatoes unpeeled, cubed
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 6 slices thick cut bacon cooked, chopped, divided
  • 6 green onions chopped, divided
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese divided
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup mayonnaise


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until just soft. Note: I prefer to steam my potatoes so that they keep their shape better, but boiling them is just fine. Drain.
  • Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl.
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients, reserving some of the crumbled bacon, green onions and cheese.
  • Fold to combine.

To serve cold

  • Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Serve topped with reserved bacon, green onions and cheese.

To serve hot

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Transfer potato mixture to a baking dish.
  • Top with reserved bacon, green onions and cheese.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  • Add bacon, onions and cheese (reserve some of each for top).
  • Mix with potatoes.
  • Pour into baking dish.
  • Top with reserved cheese, onions, and bacon.
  • Bake 350 for 10-15 minutes (until cheese melts).
