4 cups of cubed potatoes

4 hard boiled eggs, chopped

1/2 cup candied jalapeños, chopped

10 slices of bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon salt

1 stalk celery, diced

3 green onions, chopped

1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

DIRECTIONS:

Boil the potatoes until they are fork tender. Drain the potatoes and set aside. Cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp.  Place on paper towel to drain.  Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon drippings in the skillet.  Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, brine and salt to the bacon drippings in the skillet and whisk to combine. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, eggs, candied jalapeños, celery and onions.  Pour the dressing over the ingredients and gently stir to evenly coat. Stir in the bacon.
