“This past weekend I went on a camping trip and my assignment was to bring the potato salad. I wanted it to be absolutely perfect so I started messing around with recipes the week before and threw out a few batches before I came up with this. The roasted potatoes enhance the flavor of the garlic and bacon and makes this a great tasting combination. This is best made at least a day ahead so that the bacon flavor can really combine and penetrate the potatoes. Everyone absolutely loved it and I hope you do to.”
