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.

    green onions, tops only
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 c

How To Make mum's potato & egg salad

  • 1
    Peel, cut and boil potatoes. Don't boil them too long. You don't want them to get soft. Drain, put in a bowl or container, cover and cool in fridge for a couple of hours.
  • 2
    Hard boil eggs. Set aside and let cool. You can also cover them and cool them in the fridge.
  • 3
    When you are ready to prepare your salad, remove potatoes and eggs from fridge. In a large bowl, cut potatoes into smaller pieces.
  • 4
    Next, peel eggs and chop them up into the potato.
  • 5
    Chop onion greens and add to bowl.
  • 6
    Shake salt and pepper on salad, "to taste". Mix gently.
  • 7
    Dressing: Put Miracle Whip in a cup or jar. Add mustard, sugar and milk (1 tsp at a time) until it is a desirable, smooth consistency. Pour dressing on contents of bowl a little at a time. Gently mix through until it lightly coats the potato & egg and is a balance you like. As much or as little as you like will make it perfect for you. I don't like it runny.

    cover with cling wrap and place in fridge to chill before serving. I think it tastes better after sitting for a few hours. Remove from fridge, stir it around and serve.
