Hard-boiled eggs, mayo, crispy bacon, and potatoes combine for a creamy potato salad that's seasoned with spring onion.


  • 1.5kg potatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 200g bacon rashers
  • ⅔ cup (170g) whole egg mayonnaise
  • 3 Spring Onions
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper


  1. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold water and bring to the boil.
    Boil for about 10 minutes, or until just tender.
    Drain well and set aside to cool.
  2. Dice bacon, heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
    Add the bacon and cook, stirring for 7-8 minutes or until golden.
    Set aside in pan.
  3. Lightly whisk the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper together.
    Peel the eggs and cut into quarters.
    Thinly slice the spring onions.
  4. Place the warm potatoes, eggs and mayo in a bowl and fold gently to combine.
  5. Sprinkle the spring onion over the top.
  6. Lastly sprinkle your bacon on top of everything also drizzling the bacon dripping over as well.
  7. Chill in the fridge for an hour or so, then serve.



  • Spring Onion;
    The white part of the spring onion is stronger in flavour than the green, use accordingly to your taste.
  • Mayonnaise;
    The mayo only needs to be a thin coating on the potatoes. Too much may make it gluggy.

Variations for potato salad with bacon and spring onions

  • Vegetarian;
    You can certainly leave the bacon out if you would like a vegetarian potato salad (leave the eggs out too if desired).
    The egg mayo can be swapped for your favourite vegetarian brand.
  • Swap the spring onions;
    Try adding diced semi dried tomatoes, crumbled feta or chives in place of spring onions
  • Swap the bacon;
    Use chopped cooked chorizo sausage or cooked diced chicken in place of bacon.
