Baked potatoes, cheddar cheese, and crispy bacon are tossed with a delicious tangy sour cream dressing, making the perfect Loaded Potato Salad! Great for potlucks!
I’m a big fan of all things potatoes especially loaded potatoes! With summertime comes BBQ’s and that means making delicious side dishes! One of my favorites is a good potato salad. Classic potato salad is old news so it’s time to switch things up with this tasty Loaded Potato Salad!
This Loaded Potato Salad starts with baked potatoes and can be prepped the night before making this recipe even easier. (And it’s already super easy!) And a super bonus, awesome part of this recipe, is the bacon bakes at the same time as the potatoes! Win-win! So much easier and less messy than cooking bacon on the stovetop.
I took a poll on Instagram to see if people preferred shredded or cubed cheese in loaded potato salad and shredded won! But feel free to add cubes if that’s what you prefer. This recipe calls for sharp cheddar cheese which takes the flavor up a notch with its delicious taste.
I can’t post this recipe without talking about the AMAZING sour cream dressing! The ingredients seem simple enough, sour cream, mayo, salt, and pepper. I mixed that together and it was good but then I slowly added in apple cider vinegar. I honestly wasn’t sure how that would change the taste. Boy was I surprised! It made it taste 10 x’s better! It added a lovely tang and the mixture tasted so fresh.
Please don’t forget to add that in!
This recipe is amazing and super easy to make! We loved it!

This looks delicious! It’s a nice change from regular potato salad.
Thank you! I totally agree! It’s nice to have something different and this is so good!
My boyfriend hates potato salads, but this one he will eat the whole bowl himself. I couldn’t believe that I found something he would eat.
Oh that’s amazing! I’m glad he loves it! 🙂
