  • 2peel the shells from the hard boiled eggs, cut up and add to mixing bowl,
  • 3peel onion and slice and slice a couple more times, sprinkling the onion pieces over the egg and potato mixture.
  • 4add desired amount of miracle whip, mix gently, if garnishing cut hard boiled eggs width way, creating round circles, scatter the round circle egg pieces over the mixed salad and garnished with paprica.

    -I sometimes add a small amount of mustard and milk, milk seems to make it a little more creamier.
