Homemade Potato Salad

Last week I bought a 10 lb bag of potatos and needed to find a recipe to use them.   I started with a basic cheesy potato salad recipe   and then added a few of our favorite ingredients.  

Peel and cube about 2 lbs of potatos.   Bring to a boil and then cook about 10-15 minutes, until the potatos are tender.   Drain and let cool

In the original recipe she said to mix  in another bowl,  mix 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup mayo (I used miracle whip). 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 bunch  green onion.    I omitted  the sugar and green onion.  (we are not big onion eatters)    I added a few other ingredients instead  my family love the results.     I added 2 hard boiled eggs, a few slices of bacon, some onion powder, garlic powder and celery salt.   I did not measure the spices just a few shakes of each.      Mix well, and then add to the cool potatos

I sprinkled a little bit more cheese on top before serving.   This potato salad was creamy, and filling. It tasted like a loaded potato.   I served it with BBQ meatballs and a salad.    We still have plenty left over.  I think it made about 8 servings.     The only thing I think I will do differently next time is add salt in the recipe.
