  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 bunch chives, diced, divided
  • cooking spray
  • 1 onion, minced
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 ½ cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 4 pounds potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 1-inch cubes


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

Season potatoes with salt and pepper and spread in the baking pan.

Roast potatoes in the preheated oven until easily pierced with a fork, 25 to 35 minutes. Let cool, 10 to 15 minutes.

Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon on paper towels; crumble into smaller pieces.

Combine 3/4 cup Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, onion, sour cream, mayonnaise, and most of the chives in a large bowl. Stir in potatoes and crumbled bacon. Garnish with remaining 1/4 cup Colby-Monterey Jack cheese and chives.

Refrigerate salad before serving, 4 hours to overnight.
