4 strips bacon

1 pound small red potatoes, unpeeled

1 green onion, sliced

1 boiled egg, chopped

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper


  1. Cook bacon until crispy. Drain, reserving a few tablespoons of the grease, and crumble. Set aside.
  2. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan. Cover with cold water. Add a tablespoon of the bacon grease and some salt and place over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and let the potatoes cool and then cut into bite-size pieces.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper for dressing.
  4. Toss potatoes, onion, and egg in dressing. Add bacon. Serve chilled.
