I had totally forgotten about an event and needed potato salad asap. I bought 2 large bags of steak fries and popped them in the oven while cooking up a lb of bacon and in a seperate pan lightly sauteed some onions and celery. A large bottle of blucheese salad dressing and a cup of miricle whip got mixed with a couple tablespoons of bacon drippings and a splash or 3 of vinager (to taste). crumbled the bacon, broke the slightly cooled "fries" into bite size pieces and mixed everything together and let it chill in a chest full of ice on the way to the party.
I usually use boiled red potatos but everyone was amazed with this adaption and some (including myself) preferred it to the original
