I have nothing against potato salad, believe me, my grandma makes the best potato salad. 

On the other hand, if you have cookouts like every other weekend it gets a little tiring having the same old potato salad again and again, am I right???

This is a different potato salad recipe to bring to your next BBQ that’s easy to make and bursting with flavor.

It starts by roasting baby potatoes in the oven with some olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, onion & garlic powder and little rosemary until crispy and golden.

Then it’s tossed with crispy bacon pieces and THE BEST maple mayo mustard sauce….uhhhh yeah, you’re gonna want to make extras, cause I guarantee you there will be no leftovers.

Remember that amazingly delicious and addicting maple mayo sauce recipe?  The one that’s good on pretty much everything????

Mmhhmmm that’s what I’m talking about…sorry Gram, your potato salad can come to the next family party ;).

Creamy roasted potato salad with bacon and maple mustard can be served warm or room temperature.  Double or triple the recipe and it’s a great potato salad recipe for a crowd.

(Especially a bacon-maple mayo-crispy potato-loving kind of a crowd.)

The maple mayo sauce can absolutely be made ahead.  The recipe makes about 1 cup, so you can store leftovers in an airtight container or mason jar for up to two months in the refrigerator. 

If you want to make the potato salad ahead, I would suggest roasting the potatoes the day before or the day of and not adding the maple mayo until you’re ready to serve.  (Once the potatoes are covered with the mayo sauce, they lose their crispiness once refrigerated.)

You can also cook the bacon the day or two before so it’s ready to be added into the potato salad when ready.

Roasted potato salad is easy to make because you don’t have to peel the potatoes, which, if you’ve ever made potato salad before, you know it’s a tedious task!

I like using baby potatoes in this recipe because they’re easier to cut into chunks and their skin is thinner making them great for roasting.
