Oologah Bacon Potato Salad

Cowboy Cooking Recipes from AlansKitchen.com
Makes 12 servings



  1. In a skillet at a moderate heat, I fry the bacon.  When brown, I remove and drain the bacon on paper towels.  I reserve the bacon drippings.

  2. I crumble the bacon and set it aside. 

  3. To make the dressing, I use a saucepan at low heat.  To the saucepan, I add in the eggs, sugar and vinegar.  Then I whip in the flour and cook until the mixture thickens.  I add the bacon drippings and blend.  I pour the ingredients into a mixing bowl and allow it to cooling.

  4. In a large mixing bowl, I combine in the potatoes, celery, and hard-boiled eggs.  Next, I add in the onion and celery seed. 

  5. When dressing has cooled, I add the prepared salad dressing, cream, and salt.  I carefully beat the dressing.  Then I pour it over the potato mixture.  Using a wooden spoon, I want it well mixed; however, I don�t want to over mix it.  I don't want to do more than 5 turns of the wooden spoon.

  6. I put the potato salad into the serving bowl.  Then, I sprinkle the crumbled bacon over the top.  I cover with plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator to chill for about 1 hour.
