Go to a restaurant supply store and buy a commercial chopper, the type you put the veggies on the grid and slam it down. They’re a little expensive but will last forever. You will use it for everything.

DeplorableLA 18 points ago +18 / -0

It looks OK to me! Some people swear by red potatoes, I like the good ol’ basic Idaho potatoes, I make sure they are really chilled when I cut them up. I include celery and onions (white or vidalia), and crumbled crispy bacon as the last ingredient. I used a mixture of mayonnaise, mustard, a little bit of sugar, and season it with coarse ground pepper and caraway seeds. Sometimes I will add a few chopped up hard boiled eggs, if I know someone particularly likes them. There are so many good recipes for potato salad.

Edit: Whoops, I did not answer your question, not sure what I’m cooking but there will be brownies, with extra chocolate chips. Yummy.

Kek_The_World 6 points ago +6 / -0

I use hard boiled eggs too but cook extra eggs and just use the yolk on half of them. Too much of the white not good but all the yolk is great. My secrets are you have to have some type of acid, (either vinegar or mustard) and celery salt. The extra yolk makes the dressing creamy. And I use half Mayo, half sour cream.

It's basically pizza dough - back in the stone ages I worked for a pizza place that made their own dough, and it was pretty much the same recipe. We'd make loaves like that for sandwiches and garlic bread - tasty! And very easy. I'll have to try the dutch oven method sometime. I'll have to buy one...

She seems sweet. I loved the 'This dough is very forgiving...unlike some people..." bit.

Edit: I had no idea that was Jenny Jones, lol.

I sauteed the peppers with a few drops of mesquite liquid smoke and a little bit of Worcestershire for about a half hour stirring frequently.

PROTIP: ANY TIME YOU ARE FRYING GHOST PEPPERS MAKE SURE YOUR EXHAUST FAN IS TURNED ON BEFORE YOU START FRYING!!! It creates a fog worse than getting sprayed with bear repellent!

As for your potato salad, doesn't matter how it looks, let it sit overnight give it a stir and tell us how it tastes tomorrow. Gotta get that overnight mingle going.

You're spot on with the green onions. For the texture, Yukon golds and other waxy potatoes like reds will give you firm chunks like that, better for a German style, which is chunky and tossed in a dressing. Brown/russets will be softer, which is how I like mine for southern style, more akin to cold mashed potatoes.

I always keep the skin, it has more than half of the vitamin/mineral content than the rest of the potato! Instead of the typical mayo/mustard (swap potato for egg, boom, deviled eggs) I like to use sour cream and dijon; I'm a tangy kind of gal. Bacon, cheddar, a little liquid smoke (or even better, SMOKE YOUR POTATOES) with some white pepper and green onions, around the holidays I have family members asking for literal buckets of the stuff hahaha

They sell multicolor fingerling potatoes I've seen advertised as "red, white and blue" that have Peruvian purple potatoes, which are even softer and loamy-er than browns, you kind of have to undercook them a little bit if you want it to not all blend together though, which sets you up for a firmer cook, which is a waste of a good purple potato, if you ask me...

Anyway....yeah I like potato

Other than that I like to grill burgers with some ranch seasoning inside, on toasted buns, charred dogs, cooked with mesquite

Fun fact, the fat drippings hitting a hot enough surface (whether it's a gas grill or charcoal) aerosolizes into new favor compounds, which is why a grilled burger always tastes different from one cooked in a pan/on a flat top

That doesn't look like potato salad to me. Peeled and boiled an cooled white or russets, a little mayo, a little mustard, a little vinegar, a little S&P, maybe some paprika if you feeling crazy, some celery salt. common additionas around here, chopped celery, chopped boiled egg

Well, I picked up a striploin I cut into strip steaks yesterday, so a couple of those. Plus burgers, air fryer fries, and a crispy potato hash.

As for potato salad, that recipe looks like it doesn't have enough mayo, and my grandmother's secret was always to go half and half Helmann's and Miracle Whip.

Truth be told one reason I have never made it home made is he has never like mayo. He was from SA and they never had it there. But over the years I have served him the Publix one and he liked it. He actually helped tonight too...I have it chillin for tomorrow.

publius1788 3 points ago +3 / -0

I would say use russets and make sure to salt the water. Also as they are cooling put a couple of tablespoons of white vinegar over the potatoes and that gets rid of that cold potato taste which at least I don't like.

Making pizzas. We got a pizza oven last year and we’ve gotten really good at making them. Great food for having lots of people over because they’re pretty quick and easy to make. And everyone loves pizza. But I’ll be honest, I could REALLY go for some potato salad.

3
16BeatsAOne 3 points ago +3 / -0

Yukons are tricky for potato salad. I use Russets, which has loads of starch granules that swell up with water when cooking. But be very careful not to overcook Russets because there is a propensity for Russets to get mushy if overcooked. However, if you cook them correctly, you’ll have perfect potato salad. My trick is to use a wide pan of at least an eleven inch diameter, and cook the Russets without stacking on each other. I use my 11.5" fry pan and I place the Russets in one layer, then fill the fry pan with water. When cooked right, I'll stick a fork in the most average sized Russet and look for the fork to penetrate the potato by just holding the fork between my thumb and my index finger only. It might sound like an over-the-top episode of Good Eats, but it works every time. Happy 4th.

P. S. Tomorrow's menu includes sausage and peppers; burgers; potato salad and barley salad with green beans, bell peppers and feta cheese.

DZP1 3 points ago +3 / -0

Best one for potato salad is waxy types like red potatoes, not starchy ones like russets. The difference is that waxy stays firmer and starchy can get mushy. But if you cook carefully to not overcook into mushy, they are okay. Tastewise reds are good though and my preference. Yukon gold is kind of midway between types but is not my preference. I tried the Yoko Ono potato but it insisted on breaking up the Beatles.

I have red and purple potatoes growing in the garden. Trying to figure out how I can make something red, white, and blue (purple) themed. Kicking around the idea of maybe purple baked potato with red crispy bacon and sour cream, or red and purple diced potatoes into a potato or egg salad.

2
EdisonHwy 2 points ago +2 / -0

Sous vide the potatoes in chunks about golfball size or a little larger. I put about half a stick of butter. The SV cooking process leaves the potato shape but is soft to cut. Just right for German potato salad or Mexican food like a variation on enchiladas using the spuds rather than the traditional tortilla. Makes a great base for Mexican hash when using leftovers.

3
FireannDireach 3 points ago +3 / -0

Try russet. That's what my mom used, her recipe was simple - russets, peeled, boiled, cubed, some mayo, some white vinegar, chopped fresh onion and bell pepper and celery, and pepper. Easy. Everyone raved about it.
