Bugs'n'BBQ got kinda wound up when I was talkin' about this elsewhere....
So I thought it best to press onward thru the fog & see what I could come up with......

1st off, Deep fry some taters ~~~>



I used Yukon golds & Reds both very small (new potatoes)
Cut pretty small, as I was trying for a bit of crispyness along with everything else......
No coating, just as is into "Stubby" the antique fryer



Did them in small batches, in peanut oil



around dinner time, bad idea, between me & the wife the 1st batch got small....



Did this part outside as it was a very hot day
& the wife had already heated up the house canning jalepeno / apricot jelly




Chilled them down & started to mix stuff up....
Small red onion, medium white sweet onion, 5 stalks of celery...







The "secret sauce" consisted of:
3 Cups mayo
2 Tbls. dry mustard
1 Tbls. celery seed
2 Tbls. dry dill
5-6 oz. of marinated artichoke hearts small chopped
~ about the same weight pickles small chopped
1/2 cup each of pickle juice & artichoke juice

AND 15 slices of bacon, small chopped & deep fried....



Ate two bowls late last nite & really liked it, personally....





Things I might change ~~~>

1) Less dry mustard, as it was just a bit too tart from that
2)MORE BACON
3) more celery

I thought of a quick alternative after it was mixed....

There's this great bottled jalepeno ranch dressing I've been using on grilled zucchini
that could replace the herbs & mayo & such

There's probably a more streamlined way to do this, so
chime in with any ideas......

Just guessing, (from looking at the pics) I might fore go the added juices as the potatoes being deep fried have plenty of added liquid (moisture).

I do like the idea of possibly using the Jalapeno Ranch though...maybe to replace 1 cup of the mayo??

"I might fore go the added juices "

Meaning the pickle & artichoke ??

If yes, then good point & I can easily agree.....
The thought was much more about the flavoring, but it did come out too watery because of that....

"I do like the idea of possibly using the Jalapeno Ranch though...maybe to replace 1 cup of the mayo?? "


Yeah, that would work....Replacing all the mayo w/ the ranch would probably again make it too runny....
Thanks for saving me from myself Very Happy Embarassed Very Happy

Thank you Mrs Ken. You to Ken for passing it along.
Can't wait to try it.
Might even be good with peaches. That's our local crop. Very Happy

I did a search, I think it's a Presto. An old one but still a Presto. I couldn't find the exact model but what I found was close. The new fryers are crap, they can't hold a frying temp.

Marinated chokes and pistachios are the two things that I will eat compulsively till they are gone. Give me a 3 pound bag of pistachios from Sam's and they will be gone in two days. It takes all my will power not to buy them. I got hooked on them as a kid, you know the red dyed ones in the dispenser at the corner store. I'm going to have to break out the CI for the fried tater salad, should be a hit with the family. Mmmmm, served with ribs and Mexican corn. Weber's fire roasted strawberries over Bluebell Homemade Vanilla ice-cream for desert!

Two Days ????

Try Two Hours..... Shocked

Hey Bugs & Jim.....

If you happen to try my daffy "secret sauce" & not make up your own,
really pay attention to what I said about the dry (powdered ) mustard, as it has a certain souring effect at that level...

Next time I make this I may leave that out entirely & add in the jalepeno ranch dressing as explained above....

You're right about the dried mustard - ya need to be careful with it. This is my preferred brand -



It's some kick-a$$ stuff! Laughing When I make 'Southern Style' tater salad that's what I use instead of liquid mustard.
