Mum's Potato & Egg Salad

Sue Fitzpatrick


What can I say? It is delicious and one of my fave things to make in the summer months. My husband won't eat it with egg, so I just separate a couple of servings before I add egg to it.

Depending on how much you want to make, you can decide on how many potatoes and eggs you use. I figure one potato per serving. This is the way I make it. I've never followed a recipe. It's just always been made this way :)

It makes several servings.

I don't like potato salad with the skin on, but I'm sure you can use them this way.
