Potato, Bacon & Egg Salad {FALL}

Potato Bacon & Egg Salad (Fall)

This Potato Bacon and Egg Salad looks almost too pretty to eat, but let me tell you, once you start, you won't be able to stop !  It does not happen often {if ever!} when a salad wins hands down over another kind of main meal, but this is the perfect light dinner or lunch during the early Fall weeks, or early Spring even, when the weather is still a little chilly.

The salad is served semi warm, which makes it great for Fall or Winter and it is just as delicious cold. It might look like a lot of work, but it's not really and it will look like you spent hours preparing it.

This is exactly the type of salad which I will take with to a family gathering - very impressive looking, filling and delicious too.

Potato, Bacon & Egg Salad (Fall)

6 - 8 Servings


400g Baby Potatoes, skin on, scrubbed clean and cooked until just tender
5 TB Vegetable Oil
250g Bacon Bits
3 TB Balsamic Vinegar
1 TB Dijon Mustard
2 Spring Onions, chopped {white and green parts}
Lettuce, shredded
1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Large Avocado, chopped
4 Hard Boiled Eggs, halved
Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste


1.) Heat half the Oil in a large saucepan - fry the Bacon until crisp - remove and keep aside.
2.) Using the same saucepan - add the remaining Oil - cut the Baby Potatoes in half and fry in the Oil until golden.
3.) Add the Balsamic Vinegar, Mustard and Spring Onions - stir-fry another minute and remove from heat - add half the cooked Bacon and keep aside.
4.) Arrange the shredded Lettuce on a serving plate - spoon over the warm Potato mixture - scatter the Red Pepper and Avocado over the Potatoes.
5.) Top with the Egg halves and the remaining cooked Bacon Bits - season to taste with Salt and Black Pepper.

  2. This looks great, but I will admit, the whole grams thing is throwing me for a loop! How many baby potatoes and how many slices of bacon would you say approximate the grams you list? Thanks!

  3. Linda - just my favourite approach to salad - and you can't go far wrong with bacon!
