This is a sponsored post from Winn Dixie.

I’m thrilled to share my Warm Potato Salad and Bacon recipe with you along with the Winn Dixie’s Everybody Loves Bacon Event.

Winn Dixie Everybody Loves Bacon

Ah the aroma of bacon cooking on the stove. That crunchy first bite of bacon. The salty, apple wood taste. I am a bacon lover. And so is the rest of my family. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like bacon.

Winn Dixie knows that too, so they are holding the Everybody Loves Bacon Event all month long in January. You still have time to get in on it…check out their sales, recipes and samples. Samples – I’m drooling over free bacon!

I could eat just plain bacon every day, but here is one of my all time favorite bacon recipes: Warm Potato Salad with Bacon

This potato salad was a big hit at my friends’ potluck dinners. I just had to get the recipe after I learned how easy it was to make. Now I share it with my family and friends. A large bowl is often finished off or if there are any leftovers, it’s one of the first dishes people ask to take home. I hope you give it a try!

There are a lot more recipes on the Everybody Loves Bacon website and their Better with Bacon Pinterest Board. Don’t get too hungry while checking them out.

I leave you with some yummy bacon quotes:

  • “Francis Bacon has the most delicious last name ever, followed closely by Johnny Scrambledeggs. I make love like those two guys make breakfast out of family reunions. ?” -Jarod Kintz, Love quotes for the ages. And the ageless sages.
  • “The question that women casually shopping for perfume ask more than any other is this: “What scent drives men wild?” After years of intense research, we know the definitive answer. It is bacon. Now, on to the far more interesting subject of perfume.” – Tania Sanchez, Perfumes: The Guide
  • “Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon”. – Doug Larson
  • “Mmm, bacon.” – Homer Simpson
