Have You Tried the Amazing 'The Works' Baked Potato Salad Recipe Yet?

In summary, the conversation is about a highly recommended Baked Potato Salad recipe called "The Works." The ingredients include baking potatoes, sour cream, mayonnaise, bacon, red onion, celery, salt, black pepper, green onions, and cheddar cheese. The steps involve baking the potatoes in the oven, preparing the sour cream mixture, chopping the potatoes and combining them with the mixture, and refrigerating for a few hours. Some suggestions are to use a new Masher tool and to cook the potatoes in the microwave for quicker prep time. Overall, the recipe has received positive reviews, but one person found it dry and suggested adding more sour cream and mayonnaise.

Sounds good Rennae. I think this is the one on the video that came in my supply order they show making with the new Masher thing. It looked so good!
 
My director made it once for an event at her house and I didn't think it was that good. Kinda dry. YMMV.

You know what I think would quicken this recipe, is put the potatoes in the new Deep Covered Baker in the microwave, I bet those spuds would cook up real fast....
