My grandmother used to make this when I was a little girl when my siblings and I would spend the weekend. We loved it! Grandma is 100-years-old now and is unable to cook anymore, so it is my pleasure and honor to cook this and her other favorites for her when I visit!
This is a great barbecue side dish, as it can be made a day or two ahead of time, so you have more free time while barbecuing. In fact, it is better to chill the potato mixture overnight or all day.
