This is a recipe pass down to me from my Mom. This is also called Hot Potato Salad. This is an old German favorite where I grew up in the midwest.

  • 2Peel and cube 5 pounds of russet potatoes. Boil potatoes until fork tender. Remove from heat and strain in colander. Run under cold water to stop cooking. Set aside.
