Now let me tell you a story. My wife found this recipe a few years back somewhere on the internet and copied it down to a recipe card. I love this potato salad so much I wanted to put it on here so you all could partake of its goodness. So I took that card and had it on my desk at home for a long time, meaning to add it.
Well Labor day comes around and I decide to get it up here. Well guess what, it disappeared. I looked all over for it, even at work on the off chance I took it there. No luck. So it has been a month and still there was no sign of it. I was really sad that I couldn’t find it.
Well the other day my wife sent me a text to check my email and that I would be super happy. So I took a look and low and behold she had found it in her email. She had sent the recipe to a friend so it was in her sent messages folder. GO WIFE!
Now about this potato salad. It’s awesome, really its the best potato salad I have ever had. I’m, not joking. Usually potato salads are kind of bland, and either over egg-y or overly potato-y. This one is perfect, and that is why I was sad that I couldn’t find the recipe. Oh and did I mention it has bacon. Yes I said bacon! Tasty tasty bacon. I could go on forever about bacon, but I won’t I will let you get to making this awesomeness.

Found somewhere on the interwebs.
- 6 hard boiled eggs

- 2 T. mustard
- 1 1/2 t. salt
- 1/2 t. pepper
- 1/8 t. paprika
- 1/8 t. celery seed
- 1 lb. chopped cooked bacon (crunchy)
- 1 onion chopped (browned in the bacon grease)
- Chop the eggs and potatoes to the sizes you like and put them in a large bowl with the cooked onion and mix.
- In another bowl mix together mayo, ranch, relish (pickles), mustard, salt, pepper, paprika, and celery seed.

- Right before you serve it mix in the bacon. This will ensure the bacon is still crispy.
