Loaded Baked Potato Salad Recipe:

Rachael Ray’s special baked potato salad is considered to be in her top list. Baked russet potatoes with sour cream-mayo mix make your potato salad so special. With bacon, the taste increases thousands of times. The ingredients and cooking methods are clearly written below.

Ingredients we need: 
  • 4 pounds of Russet potatoes, cut in chunks
  • 2 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup of fat-free mayonnaise
  • 6 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 tsp of Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound of bacon 
  • 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Chopped parsley or mint for garnish.

Step 1: Wash the potatoes finely, and pat dry using a towel.

Step 2: Now set the oven for preheating to 400 degrees F.

Step 3: Then you need to pierce the potatoes using a fork, repeat with all potatoes, piercing 6/7 times. 

Step 4: With a cooking brush, lightly grease the potatoes with extra virgin olive oil. Also, splatter Kosher salt for seasoning. I don’t use black pepper here. The smell doesn’t feel good enough. Placing the potatoes in the baking dish, put the baking dish in the preheated oven.

Step 5: Bake the potatoes for 1 hour or until they are tender enough to be pierced with a metal skewer.

Step 6: Remove the potatoes from the oven and keep the baking dish at the cooling rack for 10 minutes or until cool to handle. 

Step 7: Now, peel the potato skin, and cut them in 1-inch cubic sizes. 

Step 8: From the cutting board, transfer the potato pieces in a large glass bowl. Pour 3 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar, coat well, and set aside for cooling the potatoes, and set flavor entirely. 

Step 9: Now, in a skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat for 10 minutes. Crumble the bacon into pieces with a spatula. then drain off the extra moisture from bacon. 

Step 10: In another bowl, combine mayonnaise, and sour cream whisking heavily. Season with the 1/2 tsp of kosher salt, and 1/2 tsp of black pepper. 

Step 11: In that potato bowl, add bacon, chopped onions, and shredded cheese. Mix them finely with hands. Lastly, pour the mayo-cream mix, folding all. 

Step 12: Wrap with a plastic cover, and keep the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. 

After chilling your dish is ready to serve. Decorate with chopped parsley or mint. Also, you can store the Rachael ray deviled potato salad in the refrigerator for 1 week.
