*Creamer potatoes grilled with a blend of herbs and spices, then tossed in a creamy barbecue dressing with bacon and green onions – great warm or cold!

So grilling potatoes is my new favorite thing.

Maybe I’ve mentioned this before (nod your head and smile like you actually read those posts), but I never really cared much about grilling before this summer. This summer, I’m all about bringing you the best of the summer season.

Potato salad. Grilled potatoes. Barbecue. Bacon.

Seemed like a pretty good combo to me.

And it was.

Maybe I’ve also mentioned once or twice that I don’t reeeeally eat salad. I mean, I eat potato salad (duh). And fruit salad and taco salad and maybe jello salad (it’s a thing, right?). But I just can’t do regular green salad.

And in most cases, I even cringe at a jar of mayo. But potato salad? I love it! Even the regular old potato salad with just the mayo. I don’t know what it is. There’s nothing I love more than some potato salad with my barbecue.

I thought about adding barbecue sauce to my potato salad “dressing”, and I’m a big fan of barbecue and bacon together. And I really wanted to try making a potato salad with grilled potatoes (warm or cold) to add to that smokey barbecue bacon potato salad.

And also because I have these handy BBQ Ready packs from The Little Potato Company (shameless plug – I just love them!). You might have seen them in this No Dishes Grilled Breakfast Casserole I made with them last month? You’re probably not going to want to miss that one.

The best part of this here?

I mean, besides the grilled potatoes and the barbecue sauce and the bacon.

    Hi Stacey! I was just looking at my local market ad on line and they now have these potatoes! Our new potatoes from the garden have all been eaten, so I’m very excited to see these are available! And, they are on special for only $1.99! Yay! I’m not a mall or clothes shopper, but I do love grocery shopping! 🙂
