Let’s Make It!
- Gather your ingredients. You will need 1 kg of potatoes (preferably new potatoes), 200g of streaky bacon, 200ml of creamy mayonnaise, 4 spring onions, black pepper, and smoky paprika.
- Begin by washing the potatoes thoroughly. Leave the skin on for that rustic touch. Dice them into bite-sized pieces, if you fancy.
- Pop those potatoes into a pot of salted boiling water. Cook them until they’re just tender, usually around 15 minutes depending on the size of your potatoes.
- While the potatoes are simmering away, get going with the bacon. Cook it in a pan over medium heat until it’s beautifully crisp and sizzling.
- Drain the potatoes and let them cool slightly. Then, chop up your spring onions.
- In a large bowl, mix together the cooked potatoes, crispy bacon, and chopped spring onions.
- Slather on your creamy mayonnaise. Add as much as you like, until every potato gets a good dunking.
- Season with a generous crack of black pepper, and a dusting of smoky paprika.
- Give everything a good mix, making sure the potatoes are well coated with that mayo and bacon goodness.
- Now, you can serve it immediately if you like it warm, or pop it in the fridge to chill for a while. Either way, it’s a guaranteed winner.
There you have it, a ridiculously tasty potato and bacon salad that’s quick, easy, and sure to bring a smile to any face. Enjoy!
