Is this baked-potato salad or baked  potato salad?

I've never made potato salad and then baked it. Well, not that I called
"potato salad", anyway.

I've made baked-potato salad. It is a good way to use left over baked
potatoes. I've also baked potatoes for salad when all I had was baking
potatoes. I use red potatoes for boiling, but white potatoes bake better.

I use the same ingredients for cold potato salad or I use the same
ingredients for hot potato salad whether the potatoes are boiled or baked.

Does it look like the usual potato salad they offer? Likely it is just 
that they used potatoes that were cooked by baking instead of boiling. 
And that would make no difference if they wrapped them with foil before 
baking which only steams them.

Previous poster had me searching for this recipe.  I found this and it sound 
really good to go with BBQ today.  It was a hit!  It reminded me of the dish 
Potato Skins.  Was it any easier to make than Potato Skins.  Not much.  It 
does make a large quantity.  Most recipes that say will serve 8 serves my 
family of 4.  This dish is large.  There is probably half of it left and we 
are looking forward to having it for lunch tomorrow.  Enjoy.  See my note 
below for some tweaking I did.  Lynne

Baked Potato Salad

Yields: 12 servings

8 medium potatoes, sliced
1/2 pound sliced bacon
1 pound processed American cheese, sliced
1/2 onion, chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup black olives, sliced

DIRECTIONS:
1.Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking 
dish.
2.Put sliced potatoes into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover. 
Bring to a boil, and cook until tender but still firm, about 10 minutes. 
Drain, and set aside.
3.At the same time, place bacon in a large deep skillet. Cook over 
medium-high heat until evenly browned. Remove to paper towels to drain.
4.In a large bowl, stir together the potatoes, cheese, onion, mayonnaise, 
salt, and pepper. Spoon into prepared baking dish. Crumble bacon over the 
top, and sprinkle with olives.
5.Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, until golden brown.

Lynne's Note:  I peeled the potatoes.  I used cheddar cheese instead of 
American and cubed it.  I chopped the onion finely as my children don't like 
large bits of onion.  I added some 1/2 tsp garlic powder.  I did not add the 
salt and pepper or the olives.  Just forgot the onions.  I sprinkled it with 
sliced green onion before serving.

I wonder how it would be with a mixture of sour cream and mayo instead of
just mayo.  I'd use a red onion and also sprinkle it with chives.

Where I got the recipe several people had commented that they used sour 
cream and mayo and that it was fabulous.

This is a recipe I just wing.  Below are some instruction on how I do it. 
Lynne

Potato Skins

large baking potatoes (I usually plan one potato per person)
1 teaspoon olive oil
Shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
Bacon, cooked and crumbled
Thinly sliced green onions

Preheat oven to 400. Wash the potatoes; pierce potatoes and bake directly 
on the oven rack until tender, about 45 minutes. Let potatoes cool.

Halve the potatoes lengthwise; using a teaspoon, carefully remove all but 
about 1/4-inch of the potato, leaving the skin intact.  Reserve the insides 
of the potatoes for another use.  Then cut the halves in half.

Brush the inside of the potato shells lightly with the 1 teaspoon olive oil. 
Heat broiler. Place the potato skins cut side up on a baking sheet; broil 
about 3 inches from the heat source for 5 minutes. Turn the potato skins 
over and broil on the other side for 1 minute.

Sprinkle with the shredded cheese.  Broil just until the cheese is melted. 
Add sour cream, crumbled bacon and green onions to taste.  Serve 
immediately.

Serves 2 to 4

It is cooking things with the top burner of your oven.

I don't know where you are but in UK we call it grilling (ie under the 
heat)

Meant to say I "just forgot the olives" and nobody missed them

Yumola Lynne.  I can't wait to make this.  I won't make it today since I'm 
doing a pot roast but I'll make it later in the week.

Instead of garlic powder, try this -- I've been using "gratiem jeow" (Thai 
fried garlic) on baked potatoes. It is incredibly good! Online sources of fried 
garlic include:
