I made this last night without ever seeing the recipe. I thought I was being original and creative, guess not lol. The only difference was that I did not use sugar, and I don't believe I would in the future. Anyway, my advice would be to add all the ingredients to your own taste - more or less cheese, bacon, onions, etc. I didn't measure anything. An earlier post said they didn't like the mayo flavor, but I can tell you I originally used just sour cream and the potatoes just seemed to absorb it and make it very dry. I added mayo (not miracle whip!) for moisture and texture, not necessarily flavor - so I suggest you don't leave it out entirely. It also needs several good shakes of salt and pepper. I chose to bake the potatoes in the microwave because I think boiled potatoes lose a little flavor. Plus it's just faster and easier. My 12 yr old hates traditional potato salad, but absolutely loved this. UPDATE: Hubby insisted I make traditional potato salad for 4th of July, but I chose to make this also. By the end of the meal this potato salad was gone and the traditional was still half full. I was asked for the recipe by several people.
