  • Foodie friends, I have a confession to make. I really don’t care for mayo based potato salad. I know, I know, but it is just too much mayo for me. But I really, really, REALLY love potatoes and like having other non-mayo potato salad options for BBQs and potlucks.

    I generally make my Herbed Potato Salad, which is super, but decided to make something a little more smoky to accompany my newest meatloaf recipe (as opposed to mashed potatoes). I recently had a potato salad I adored at the Four Seasons here in Baltimore.

    There were tables of gloriously prepared foods: suckling pig, crab cake sliders, smoked oysters and shots of green garlic soup… but there was a giant bowl of smoked potato salad that I adored. I marched right on over and had the suckling pig lady give me an extra sprinkle of Maldon sea salt and I was a happy camper.

    I texted the chef, a friend of mine, and he seemed a little surprised that of all the wonderful things presented, the potato salad was what stood out for me. Silly, I know.

    I decided something similar would be a fresh way to pair my Stuffed Meatloaf, starting with buttery new potatoes and pickled red onion. A little bell pepper for a nice snap in texture and bacon to add the smoky feature, since I was not planning on spending my afternoon heating up the smoker for potatoes.
