How to make Potato Salad for two:
Bring a small pan of water to a boil and add the diced potatoes. Cook for about 12 minutes. Test for tenderness by poking a fork into a potato. If it slides in easy and feels soft or breaks in half, it is ready. Drain the potatoes then put them in the refrigerator to cool.
Tip: Resting a wooden spoon on top of boiling water will help prevent the water from boiling over and making a mess.
Add the egg to a small pan and cover with water. On the stove top, bring it to a boil. Once it reaches a full boil, cover the pan, then turn off the heat. Let it sit for 12 minutes. Then, drain the water and put the egg in the refrigerator to cool.
Heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat and cook the bacon until crisp. Click for a non-stick skillet.
Drain the bacon on paper towel and crumble when cool.
On a cutting board, dice the onion, celery, egg, and pickles. They can be diced large or small, just try to keep them the same size as each other if possible. Click for a cutting board.
In a bowl mix together the mayo, seasoned salt, and pepper.
Toss the mayo mixture together with the potatoes, egg, celery, onion, and pickles.
Stir in the bacon and serve or chill until ready to serve.
