Hearty & Yummy ~ this stepped-up potato salad is always a big hit!
Loaded Potato Salad
5 or 6 large potatoes, I like Yukons
olive oil
1/2 lb bacon
1/2 lb maple smoked ham, cut into cubes
1 large onion, diced
3 hard boiled eggs. diced
2 Tbl sweet pickle relish
2 Tbl dill pickle relish
2 tsp salt (or to taste)
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp ground celery seed
1 tsp dill seed
1 tbl chopped fresh dill
1 tbl chopped fresh chives
1 tbl chopped fresh parsley
1 tbl chopped cilantro
1 cup mayo
1/2 cup half & half
2 tsp paprika
Rub clean potatoes with olive oil, sprinkle with salt & wrap in foil. Bake until done, but firm - not mushy, approx 1 hr.

Cut bacon into small pieces & brown in skillet until crisp. Remove to drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 1 tbl of bacon drippings, then in same skillet add ham cubes & chopped onion, saute until onion is translucent. (If you dont want to use the drippings, pour off all & add 1 tbl butter) (I use a little of each) Pour into large bowl.

Remove foil & rough chop potatoes, leaving skin on, into cubes. Add potatoes into bowl with ham & onion. Continue to add eggs, pickles & herbs. Toss gently to mix. In mixing cup whisk together mayo, seasonings (except paprika) & half & half until smooth. Pour over potatoes & mix gently-try not to break up potatoes. Add more mayo/half & half if necessary to your liking.
Sprinkle top with paprika & bacon. Serve immediately warm or refrigerate until serving time. Serve with love & lots of friends!
