We all loved when granny would whip up her famous tater salad this time of year. But we’ve never quite perfected making it ourselves. Here’s the best Texas recipe we could find!

Ingredients:

6 pounds medium red potatoes
Water

DRESSING:
1 cup water
½ cup butter, cubed
¼ cup white vinegar
2 eggs
½ cup sugar
4-½ teaspoons cornstarch
¾ cup heavy whipping cream
¾ cup Miracle Whip

SALAD:
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 green onions, sliced
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
3 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
Paprika

Directions:

Place potatoes in a stockpot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain. When cool enough to handle, peel and slice potatoes; cool completely.

For dressing, in the top of a double boiler or metal bowl over barely simmering water, heat water, butter and vinegar until butter is melted. In a small bowl, beat eggs; add sugar and cornstarch. Add to butter mixture; cook and stir for 5-7 minutes or until thickened. Transfer to a large bowl; cool completely.

In a small bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Stir Miracle Whip into cooled dressing mixture; fold in whipped cream. Stir in onion, green onions, salt and pepper. Add potatoes; toss lightly to combine. Refrigerate, covered, until chilled.

To serve, top with hard-cooked eggs; sprinkle with paprika.
