What’s better than potato salad? Bacon potato salad! What’s better than bacon potato salad? Why, Bacon Sriracha Potato Salad, of course, and we’ve got the recipe for you! The truth of the matter is: not all potato salads are created equal. Some of them are good, some of them are bad, and some of them you will want to eat seven days a week. When potato salad is done right, it is to die for. And potato salad with bacon, Sriracha sauce, and green onions is the ultimate potato salad – ever!Okay, so not all of us may be familiar with Sriracha sauce, so let me explain. Sriracha sauce is a hot and spicy red sauce made with garlic and red chilis. It’s often served with Thai cuisine, but it’s certainly not limited to any cuisine in particular – it tastes great in almost everything, and it goes amazingly well with potatoes and bacon! It also gives this entire potato salad dish an incredibly rich shade of orange and gold.
This spicy bacon potato salad dish can easily be served on its own – it’s that good and it’s that filling, but it also works well as a side dish, especially during barbeque season. It tastes amazing with just about anything – hamburgers, veggie burgers, grilled beef, fish, and chicken! And who doesn’t love potato salad at a potluck? If you take this particular version, however, you’d better come well-stocked. One batch just won’t do it; you’ll need two or three or maybe even four. You might want to go ahead and make several copies of the recipe because everyone and their dog will be asking for it!
Another bonus of this Bacon and Sriracha Potato Salad is that it always tastes better the day after you make it! Something just happens to it when it sits in the refrigerator overnight – everything just gels together perfectly and all of the flavours really come out to party. So, be sure to make tons no matter what the occasion, and you can be eating spicy potato salad for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even those midnight snacks. Oh, and by the way, this is the ultimate craving food if you’re pregnant! There’s one ingredient not included in this zesty potato salad recipe that could make it even better. What? What could possible be better than Bacon Sriracha Potato Salad? Cheese. Yes, cheese. Everything tastes better with cheese. And what could be better than bacon, Sriracha sauce, potatoes, and cheese?
And another thing to keep in mind – potato salad dishes are most often served cold or at room temperature, right? But have you ever tried heating them up? I have a friend who swears by frying his potato salad a day or two after he’s made it. Sounds crazy, right? Nope! Fried potato salad with cheese on top is the most amazing thing I’ve ever tasted. Seriously. Just try it and you’ll see what I mean. Put a little coconut oil in a frying pan, heat it up, and fry your Bacon Sriracha Potato Salad. Slide it into a bowl with a little garlic butter and sprinkle some grated cheddar cheese on top. You will be blissed out for days! If frying doesn’t appeal to you, then try baking it – it’s just as good! Warning: once you fry or bake your potato salad, you might not want to have it any other way ever again! Ah, but I’ve digressed – back to the original Bacon Sriracha Potato Salad recipe. No matter how you experiment with, prepare, and serve it, it’ll be the best treat you’ve had in years, we promise!
