Hot Potato Salad

 There are those old recipes you have in your recipe collection.  You know, the ones you have forgotten about, or haven't made in um-teen years,  because you got caught up in another cooking rut where you made the same things over and over again, in a never ending rotation, that seemed to go on forever, much like this sentence.

Well, this is one of those recipes I have had forever.  My mom and and aunt made this all the time when I was growing up.  A very simple recipe that is perfect for potlucks.  A definite crowd pleaser.


  • 8-10 large potatoes, peeled, diced and boiled
  • 8 oz. Velveeta cheese
  • 1 cup light mayo
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1/4 cup milk (more to thin)
  • 1 finely diced sweet onion or 4-5 sliced green onions
  • 1/2 lb. bacon, cooked very crisp

Clean, peel, dice and boil potatoes.  Preheat oven to 350.  Cube Velveeta, and in a saucepan, mix cubed Velveeta, mayonnaise, onion, cheddar and milk.  Melt over medium low heat until all the cheese is melted and smooth.  Place potatoes in a lightly grease 9x13 or casserole dish.  Pour cheese mixture over potatoes and stir to coat potatoes.  Sprinkle cooked bacon over the top (or stir in if you desire) and place in oven. (or you can chill until you want to bake)  Bake for 30 minutes (longer if coming from fridge) or until browning a bit and hot through.
