Aunt Irene’s Old Fashioned Mustard Potato Salad. This is my favorite potato salad recipe.

Aunt Irene’s Old Fashioned Mustard Potato Salad


  • 2 lbs. peeled and chopped potatoes cooked fork tender
  • 2 Tbl. Butter
  • 2 Tbl. Milk
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ Cup mustard
  • 3 heaping Tbl. Mayo
  • ½ Cup finely chopped onion
  • ½ Cup finely chopped dill pickles
  • 3 hard boiled eggs – 2 finely chopped


  1. Combine potatoes, butter, salt, and milk with a hand mixer until completely smooth, although it will be a little dry. Don’t use a ricer, it is not as smooth.
  2. Add all the other ingredients except a single boiled egg.
  3. Mix well. Then taste, you may need to add more mayo, mustard, or salt – depending on your families taste.
  4. Place in a bowl. Smooth top. Quarter last boiled egg and place around top like picture. It has to look like a daisy to be like Aunt Irene’s.
