The very best potato salad you could ever make that tastes exactly like a bowl full of baked potatoes with all the fixings.
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . Pierce the potatoes with a fork; brush with oil. Bake until tender, 1 hour. Let cool, then cut into bite-size pieces.
2. In a skillet, cook the bacon until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain.
3/ In a large bowl, combine the butter and sour cream; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the potatoes, bacon, scallions and cheese. Serve at room temperature.
*If you want to make this ahead of time - bake the potatoes, shred the cheese, chop the scallions and fry/crumble the bacon. Then when its time to party, you just cut up the potatoes and assemble!
