With all this HOT weather, I was in the mood for some potato salad, but not your usual potato salad.  I wanted to change it up a bit and try something new!  So I made Bacon and Quail Egg Potato Salad, and I think it was the best potato salad I have ever had!

Here’s how I made it:

I started with boiling potatoes in chicken stock with garlic gloves.

While they were boiling I cooked up some bacon, extra crispy and hard boiled some quail eggs.

When everything was done cooking and cooled, I cubed the potatoes, crumbled the bacon and peeled and sliced the quail eggs. I also sliced up the garlic gloves that I boiled with the potatoes.

In a large bowl I added the potatoes, bacon, half of the quail eggs, onion, tumeric, basil, and mayonnaise.  Mix all together and top with the remaining half of the quail eggs, chill and serve.

I did not measure anything out, I rarely do when I cook, so I can’t tell you how much of everything to use, I just go by my families personal taste. I think it was boiling the potatoes in chicken stock and garlic that is the key to such a flavorful potato salad.

It was positively delicious and the only problem I had was not making a bigger batch! 🙂
