This turned out a little thick for a potato salad dressing, so the next time I would add more water or vinegar to thin out when I'm cooking the egg mixture. For our tastes, it was a bit sweet, so I would start by reducing the sugar by half and then add more if needed. Read More

This was ok. It does not taste good unless you toss it with the potatoes and chill overnight. Otherwise all you taste is sugar. I did add some chopped fresh parsley for color. Be careful of the eggs scrambling on you turn the heat to LOW and stir constantly. Read More

This is how my mother made hers she passed away almost 7 years ago and although I had an idea of how she made it I wasn't completely sure about how much of what. I made it today and used this recipe and tweaked it with things that I remember my mother doing. I used mayonnaise Miracle Whip is sweet so the amount of sugar recommended worked well for me. Also my mother didn't use flour her thickening was the eggs so I used 3 eggs instead of 2. I didn't use water I used condensed milk that makes it a little richer. Also I used apple cider vinegar and just a splash of sweet pickle brine. Mine turned out perfect it's a nice light yellow and has a creamy pudding like consistency. It may not be as good as my mother's (no one cooked like her) but it's pretty darn good. Read More
