Creamy Potato Recipe Request

I am looking for a recipe that looks like mashed, creamed or whipped potatoes but tastes like potato salad that has been prepared with vinegar or pickle relish - it is creamy smooth and served warmed.

My mother in law actually makes her potato salad like mashed potatoes. Same ingredients as regular potato salad, she just mashes it up completely, like mashed potatoes. When I was younger, I used to love to eat my mom's potato salad right after she made it ... when it was still warm. Didn't like it so much after it was refrigerated. Could this be what you tried?

My mother made potato salad out of left-over mashed potatoes. Added hard boiled eggs, pickle/relish, salad dressing/mayonaise and vinegar. I always enjoyed it cold, don't think I ever tried it warm.

I believe what you are after is called a German Potato Salad.

It is served warm and is made with vinegar. I've never made it but I've seen many recipes over the years for it.

Serves 4-6


1 & 1/2 lbs Potatoes

2 eggs

1 /4 cup sweet pickle juice

1/ 2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sweet pickles, chopped

1/2 cup celery, diced

1/2 cup green onions, chopped

2 Tbsp. parsley, chopped

1 tsp. prepared yellow mustard

1 tsp. sugar

salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste


Boil potatoes and eggs in salted water. Cook just until potatoes are tender, 12-15 minutes. Drain; set eggs aside to cool. Transfer drained, hot potatoes to a bowl and add pickle juice. Let stand until potatoes are cool. This gives the potato salad it's great flavor.

Meanwhile, peel and slice eggs into quarter inch rounds. Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl. Gently stir in potatoes and eggs. Serve salad cold or at room temperature. Can be prepared up to 2 days ahead and stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
