  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Place bacon slices in a single layer on a cooling rack placed inside a baking sheet. If you don't have a cooling rack, simply line the baking sheet with foil before placing bacon on top. Bake until bacon is crispy, around 15 minutes. 
  • While bacon is baking, cook the potatoes by placing them in a pan then covering with cold water. Boil until fork tender, about 12-15 minutes. Strain and set aside. 
  • Follow this tutorial to hard boil the eggs to your desired doneness. Let eggs cool enough to peel then chop into bite-sized pieces. Place cooked potatoes in a large bowl along with diced, cooked eggs. 
  • Remove bacon from oven and chop into small pieces. Add to the bowl along with the potatoes and eggs.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together dressing: mayo, vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt and pepper. Drizzle dressing over the potatoes, bacon and eggs then toss to coat. Sprinkle in scallions before serving. Can be served warm, room temperature or chilled.
