I've tried other recipes through the years and my family pleads for me to stick to the original one I started with in the '70's. The chopped hard boiled eggs are the secret ingredient that gives this recipe it's extra creaminess. There are no onions which makes kids happier. I have tossed out all other recipes in favor of this tried and true one. This Southern Living recipe is a true treasure!
