    This turned out really delicious, very close to how my nana used to make it. I was skeptical about adding onion but I am glad that I did. I also added parsley and a little bit of Kens ranch dressing.

    We did not enjoy this. It would be good with a little extra mustard, extra salt and no onions. Add some pickles... The potatoes need to be cooked a little longer. Honestly, we just didn’t like this recipe but it has hope.
