Hard-boiled eggs, mayo, crispy bacon, and potatoes combine for a creamy potato salad that's seasoned with spring onion.
Boil for about 10 minutes, or until just tender.
Drain well and set aside to cool.
Add the bacon and cook, stirring for 7-8 minutes or until golden.
Set aside in pan.
Peel the eggs and cut into quarters.
Thinly slice the spring onions.
The white part of the spring onion is stronger in flavour than the green, use accordingly to your taste.
The mayo only needs to be a thin coating on the potatoes. Too much may make it gluggy.

What to Eat with Potato salad
Potato salads are often paired with meat dishes like barbecue, grilled pork and chicken, and a good meatloaf.
Aside from the meat dishes I mentioned earlier, you can also pair potato salad with chicken nuggets, cashew crusted chicken, pork chops, battered chicken, and the like.
Potato is a light dish that can go well with any of these dishes.
I personally love pairing potato salad with barbecued ham steak and pineapple. It’s a very flavourful and appetizing combination with a tropical flavour.
Even simple foods like hot wings, hamburgers, sausage and hotdogs would go well with potato salad.
But what if you’re tired of too much meat? Well, you can also pair potato salad with other fish dishes.
From pan seared fish to breaded fish fillets, any fish recipes would go well with potato salad such as Salmon Salpicao.
You can also serve potato salad with fresh or smoked salmon and tiger prawns.
