Cooking Potatoes:
5 Potatoes (I used Golddust, what I had.)
1T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2T TONY’S Creole Seasoning
1/4tsp Pepper
1/4tsp Sea Salt

Sauce:
3/4c Miracle Whip
1/2tsp Worcestershire

1.5-2T Sweet Relish

3T REAL Bacon Pieces
4T Celery, minced
4T Sweet MINI Bell Peppers, chopped.
2T Onions, minced
1c Crab (I used imitation… I’m cheap!)

Boiled Eggs, sliced
Shredded Cheese

For HEAT Optional Adds: Louisiana Hot Sauce (Or, to top each Bowl), Minced Jalapenoes (Or, to top each bowl), Cayenne, Red Pepper Flakes

Cube Potatoes. Add Potatoes to ziploc bag. Add half Oil. Shake. Add in HALF Pepper, Creole, and Salt, shake. Add in Rest of Oil, then Season, shake. I allow to set/marinade 30minutes. Grill in Foil. (Or bake how desired).
I premake Sauce, and set aside til use. You can eat this salad warmed or cooled. If cooled (As most are): Grill or Bake Potatoes. Set into fridge to cool some. Mix with Sauce, stir in Vegis, NO LONGER THAN 30 minutes prior to serving. Top with Egg Slices and Shredded Cheese.

Optional to sprinkle top of Cheese, LIGHTLY, with Lawry’s Seasonal Salt, or More Creole. (I SKIPPED the extra salting).

Notes: I add Sauce close to serving time, due to Potatoes Eating Up Sauce. More flavorful that way.
