Potato Salad Pr0n – Potatoes with Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

DSC_7945 (1600x1060)We were quite taken with the store-bought baked potato salad we bought the other day at the market.  I was determined to make some and today seemed like a good day.  Alas!  I could only turn up a handful of small yellow potatoes.  I did have a little bag of Brussels sprouts so I thought “why not”?  I quartered the potatoes and halved the sprouts and set them to roasting on a tray at 400 in the oven, drizzling a little olive oil over them first.  When they had a little brown on them I dumped the lot into a big bowl, adding sour cream and mayo,  about a cup each.  Also add chopped crisp bacon, I used six slices, and a fair measure of cheese.  I have about one and a half cups of mixed cheddar and jack cheese.  Chopped green onions are in the classic recipe but I had none, and judged the sprouts sufficient.  I did rethink and add a bit of chopped parsley for a garnish.  The crisp outer leaves of the sprouts go great in this, don’t try to pick them off!DSC_7940 (1600x1060)Some roasted chicken thighs set the salad off perfectly, I brushed them with bbq sauce at the end, and glopped a little more on them for the table.  Yes, we keep napkins at the table.  LOL
