Patriotic American Flag Potato Salad

I originally saw this Stars and Stripes Potato Salad on BuzzFeed and loved the idea! I wasn't crazy about their ranch dressing mixed potatoes though so I came up with my own tasty potato salad mixture. I still topped it with bacon, chips, and sour cream to make a flag design just like the video on BuzzFeed. The end result was creamy, crunchy and pretty darn good! Patriotic American Flag Potato Salad is a great side dish to serve anytime but especially during the summer holidays like Independence Day, Memorial Day, and today, Patriot Day. 

Let us take a minute and remember those we lost on 9/11/01. We will never forget!

Ingredients:

  • 6 lbs Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into one inch cubes
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked {in the oven so they stay flat}
  • 10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 6 tbsp green onion, diced
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 6 tbsp mayo {I like Duke's}
  • 1 1/2 cup mixed blend cheese {or Cheddar}, shredded
  • salt/pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup blue corn tortilla chips, crumbled

Directions: 


  1. Place diced potatoes in a large pot of water and cover with water.  
  2. Bring to a boil over medium high heat.  
  3. Cook for about 8-10 minutes, until fork tender. 
  4. Drain the potatoes and let cool.
  5. In a small bowl mix together 3/4 cup sour cream, mayo, and salt and pepper.
  6. In a large bowl, add the potatoes, crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, and green onions.
  7. Add the dressing and toss to coat.
  8. Pour into a 9X13 baking dish or a large rectangular platter.
  9. Lay 6 slices of bacon {I cook in the oven so they stay flat and don't shrink} in rows on top of the potatoes to make flag "stripes".
  10. Sprinkle the blue corn tortilla chips in the upper left corner.
  11. Add remaining sour cream to a baggie, cut off the corner, and squeeze sour cream out to make rows of dots all over the chips. 
  12. Serve and dig in!

 Peel all the potatoes. You should have about 12.
 Cut the potatoes into cubes, about 1 inch or so each.

 Sprinkle the blue corn tortilla chips in the upper left corner.
