Step 1

Place potatoes in a large pot. Cover with the eggs, add cold water until the potatoes and eggs are fully covered in water. Cover the pot with a lid and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook the potatoes until fork tender.

Using tongs, remove the eggs from the pot and drain the water from the potatoes. Run cold water over the potatoes while they are in the strainer.

Place potatoes in large mixing bowl, peel then chop the eggs, add to the potatoes.
Add celery, green onion, chopped bacon, and parsley (reserve some parsley for garnish),

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, pepper, garlic powder and ground mustard. Pour the mixture over the potatoes and carefully mix.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

NOTE: If you are pressed for time, you can steam the potatoes in the microwave and use hard boiled eggs.
