Deviled Egg Potato Salad Recipe

My daughter will be the first to admit that she's an extremely picky eater. Getting her to try new foods is like pulling teeth. As a toddler, she'd eat anything and gladly try new foods. Unfortunately her pickiness has slowly evolved and, as a family, we are now trying to expand her palette. Over the years I've tried different things and one thing I've found that really works is having her help me develop recipes using multiple ingredients she already likes. When I told her that I was going to start posting these recipes online she pulled out her notepad and has been busy jotting down ideas. This is how the concept of a mother/daughter recipe series began and if this is a way to get her to eat something new, then I'm happy to keep it going.

This recipe for Deviled Egg Potato Salad was developed a few weeks ago. We were at a picnic where there was not a lot of food that she would eat. There were deviled eggs, which my daughter would eat all the time if she could, and there was potato salad. She loves potatoes prepared in different ways and she used to gobble up potato salad so I suggested that she try a bit of it. She must have been hungry because she tried it without complaint and she liked it (after picking out the chopped celery). As I looked down at my own overloaded plate where the deviled egg had been smashed into the potato salad I realized that they would make a good combination. Later that evening, with my daughter as my trusty sidekick and taste tester, we put together this recipe and...success! We now have another dish to add to the slowly growing list of things my daughter will eat. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 1 hour 30 min
Yields: Serves eight people 1/2 cup each

Ingredients

  • 8 - 9 medium Red Bliss Potatoes, (approximately 2lbs)
  • 3 Eggs, hard boiled
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Yellow Mustard
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Paprika

Instructions

  1. Peel and cut the potatoes into bite sized pieces. Place in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil, cooking until fork tender. Drain and set aside to cool. Note: don't overcook them or they get too soft and break apart when stirred.
  2. In a small bowl, finely chop the hard boiled eggs. Set aside. Note: To hard boil eggs, put eggs in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil. Cover the pot, turn off the burner and let the eggs rest for 20 minutes. Drain and cool immediately so they stop cooking.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, mustard, onion powder and paprika.
  4. Once potatoes are cooled, stir them together in the large bowl with the chopped eggs and the mayonnaise mixture. Chill for at least one hour. When ready to serve, sprinkle with a little paprika.
  5. A few hints: We try to be careful with our salt intake so we don't use it in this recipe. It could easily be added and taste just as good. We have tried this recipe with regular mayonnaise and reduced fat mayonnaise and both are tasty. Statistics for regular mayonnaise were used in calculating the nutritional data. My daughter doesn't like celery or onion, but chopped finely, either would make a good addition to this salad.
  6. Refrigerate any unused salad. If taking to a picnic or other event, make sure it stays cool.

Try it with macaroni instead

The dressing on this salad is good with macaroni too. Just substitute the elbow macaroni for the potatoes.

  • Cook the macaroni as per the directions on the package. Set it aside to cool.
  • Make the dressing in a large bowl and add the cooked pasta and chopped eggs. Toss gently until well mixed.

Because the noodles and eggs are soft, this salad is really good with finely chopped celery and or finely chopped onions. Add 1/2 a cup of each if desired. They add a nice crunch to the salad.

Both the potato salad and the macaroni version are really good with barbecue. The creamy salad pairs well with spicy barbecue sauce. Honestly though, it goes well with just about anything.

      Looks yummy! I just made potato salad yesterday very similar to this, but with chopped onions and celery. My husband loves the chopped hardboiled egg in it as well. :)

      Yum - what's not to like? When ever I am at a summer buffet I pick potato salad and devilled eggs. This looks like a great dish.

      I do add finely chopped onion when I make potato salad, but never celery - I know too many people who dislike it.

      I am voting this up, and adding it to my Recipe Index for HubPages.

      Thanks 2patricias! Onion is ok too, but my daughter won't eat it, so we keep it out. Whenever I make this I am reminded of summer picnics. I appreciate the comments.

      What a cool idea! I would have never thought to combine the two, but this sounds tasty. If you don't mind, I would like to add a link of this to my cookout hub. This is an awesome variation of potato salad!

      Hi alex - glad you found this recipe. You can definitely make it with Miracle Whip. It will have a slightly different flavor, but should be just as good. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      This sounds delicious! My hubby and I just watched a segment on Cook's Country this morning for an Amish Potato Salad. It had some of the same elements in it with some variations of course. The tasters said it tasted like a deviled egg potato salad. Sounds like a winner to me! Sharing this and will be trying it soon.

      Hi Charlene - I might have to give the sweet pickles a shot. Only problem with that is my daughter doesn't like them, but sometimes it's nice to make something yummy for me too. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Thanks so much Peggy! I think you'll like this one. It really does taste and smell like deviled eggs and people just devour it. I appreciate the support.

    • Claire 13 months ago

      Really neat idea! Just made this today; I added in macaroni with the potatoes and eggs, as well as some garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. I personally think the 1/4 cup mustard is a little too much with only 1/2 cup mayo. I had to add in a bit more mayo to lessen the taste of the mustard. I guess it will vary based on personal preference. I will be making this again, however. Easy recipe to play around with :)
