  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and set in the refrigerator to cool.
  2. Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.
  3. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  4. Chop the cooled potatoes, leaving skin on. Add to a large bowl, along with the eggs, bacon, onion and celery. Add mayonnaise, salt and pepper to taste. Chill for an hour before serving.

Delicious! I cubed the potatoes before boiling because I figured it would be easier to get the right consistency. I always seem to cook potatoes too long. I also only added 4 eggs because I d...

This is an excellent recipe! I used bacon bits and added a little mustard, too. The lady that wrote it had too much celery apparently made the same mistake I did one time--confusing one stalk o...

Is the amount of potatoes correct; or is there a typo? 2 cups of Mayo, 6 eggs and a pound of bacon for only 2 lbs of potatoes? That seems excessive to me. To start I'll try 1 cup of Mayo... (Hel...
