Welllll, asking me not to tweak a recipe is pretty much like asking me not to breath. I just can’t help it.
However, I did reign myself in on this day. My main goal was to “clean it up”. I always put hard boiled eggs in my potato salad. But you know, if you do the same, that the yolks and the whites always end up separated.
So my mind began to wander. Hmmmm
I use pretty much the same ingredients in my potato salad as in my deviled eggs.
I hate it when the eggs fall apart (I have no idea why I am just weird like that).
Sooooo, why not fix that issue by combining the egg yolks with the sauce, Ala deviled eggs, and thus alleviating the irritation, with the bonus of making the sauce creamier and richer. Well, why the heck haven’t I thought of this before now?
I may be slow but I eventually get there.
When my son came over for the BBQ I told him out of the gate that I changed up the recipe for his beloved potato salad, just a tad.
I got the “look”.
I really hate that look!
So I nervously waited for him to give it a try.
The look on his face went from a doubting scowl to a huge smile.
“WOW Mom, that is really good”.
All I could think was “DUH, how can you go wrong with deviled eggs and potato salad?
Oh, ye of little faith”.
But I just calmly smiled and said, “I am so glad you like it”.
He has now informed me that this is his favorite potato salad.
Hhmmmm imagine that. Mom actually knew what she was doing.
