In one large pot, season water with Young Bucks BBQ steak seasoning. Bring water to a Boil water and add potatoes. At this time start frying all your bacon, cook till crispy ( you don’t want floppy fat in this dish, even if that is how you like it for breakfast) Boil till tender but do not overcook. (test potatoes by using a fork and pressing a potato piece against the wall of the pot, you are looking for little pressure/resistance for the potato to give and smash) once done drain water and place in a large pan. Drain the bacon grease, green onions, yellow onions, real mayo, Tony’s Cajun seasoning, and mustard to the pan with potatoes.
With potato masher *with 1 pass only* smash random spots (no more than 6-7 times) then stir all ingredients until evenly spread.
At this time, you may adjust the mayo, mustard, or Tonie’s until you reach that flavor that best suits you. Just add a little at time, don’t mess it up 🙂
This potato salad is amazing served warm! But also, good cold.
