We’re finally here! We made it! Que Will Smith ‘Summer, summer, summertime…summertime.’ Break out the flip flops and tank tops. Get ready for long days in the pool or at the beach and bellies full of BBQ. This time of year requires a hand full of quick sides to please cookout guests whether it’s planned or impromptu. I think my son’s favorite potato salad fits any party big or small.
When I told my son I was making one of his favorites he was excited. I’ve made some of his favorites like Cheesy Pierogi Casserole, Easy Chicken & Dumplings or Out of a Can Chili but this is a very specific favorite of his. He takes the first bite and says ‘I love this!’ so I just started calling it ‘Avery’s Potato Salad’. Let’s get on to the recipe so you can get on with your summer.
The key to this recipe is to have equal parts potato to equal parts egg. Chop the potatoes into small pieces then add to a pot with the eggs. Add enough water to the pot to cover them cook over medium heat (not so high it boils over) and cook for 14 minutes. Using a colander (or this fancy little draining spoon I have) to drain the potatoes then run under cold water to bring the heat off of the potatoes.
At this point I put the potato and eggs into a bowl then put them into the refrigerator for a half hour or so. This cools the potatoes down more and makes it so I don’t burn my fingers peeling the eggs. That is no fun!
Once the items are cooled peel the eggs. Add the cooked yolks to the potatoes then chop them into small pieces. Dice up the onion and add that. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl: relish, mayo, mustard, sugar and vinegar. The sugar and vinegar add a slight sweet and sour taste that gives the salad a nice kick to it.
Return it back to the refrigerator for another hour or so to let the flavors meld. Top with oregano or paprika and here you are….

As one of the bonus entries in the giveaway, leave a comment on this blog post… what is your favorite dish to eat at a cookout?
Sliders have been a huge hit in my house since I started making them about a year ago. In the summer they pair well with chips and other cold side dishes. In the winter they are perfect for dipping into soups. They are also big on flavor when you hit the right combination. I think I have a winner for you today for Sunday Supper, Turkey & Bacon Sliders with ‘Isn’t That Special’ Sauce.
Sure you can make these sliders just plain or maybe add some boring mayonnaise on it but why would you when you can add some ‘Isn’t That Special’ Sauce? While this is similar to the pickle & vinegar based sauce we all know and love I really wanted to set mine apart with a unique name. So I am paying homage to a show that I have loved since my early teen’s, Saturday Night Live.
You know that question, “Who are the 3 people you would invite to dinner?” I could easily answer that and everyone at the table would be a former cast member of SNL. I am a super Tina Fey Fan Girl. Will Ferrell in my eyes is the hottest guy in Hollywood. And Steve Martin is a genius. Who would you invite to dinner?
Alright, enough chit chat. Let’s get cooking!. Gather your ingredients….
Cook your bacon according to package direction. I just make mine right on my stove top but my friend swears by baking it in the oven. Drain the bacon then set up a slider assembly. Grease the bottom of a baking dish. Add buns, turkey, bacon and cheese. Top off with the bun. In a microwave safe mug add 2 Tbs. butter and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. Melt butter in microwave. Pour on top of the sliders. Put sliders into a preheated 375 degree over for 15 minutes.
For the sauce. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Done! Pour over the sliders when they are served. Add tomatoes if you wish. And here you are…..
