Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Potatoes are comfort food for me.  When the weather starts getting cooler or I’m stressed out, comfort food is what I want.  And this Loaded Baked Potato Salad?  Did it do the trick?  Oh man.  It didn’t make the sun shine but it did make life a little less stressful, even for just a little while.  (Okay, maybe not really.  But it did taste really good!)

The original recipe came from This is My Key West.  I changed it just a little bit, omitting the onions and chives and adding some ranch dressing to it.

I don’t usually measure out ingredients when I’m making something like this so just wing it if you want.

Loaded Baked Potato Salad


Loaded Baked Potato Salad


  • One 5 pound bag medium Russet Potatoes
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Ranch Dressing
  • 1 package of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • Chives, to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Wash the potatoes and poke holes in them with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour or until fork tender.
  2. Let the potatoes cool. I peeled mine at this point, but you don't have to. Cut into bite sized chunks.
  3. Mix the mayo and sour cream together in a bowl. Add to the potatoes, then add the onions, chives, and cheese. Salt and pepper to taste.
  4. You can top with additional cheese, bacon, and chives.
  5. Enjoy!
