Although it was very good, this recipe calls for too much mustard! I eat at Cafe on the route at least once a month and the fried potato salad they serve does not have that much of a mustard taste. I would only use about 1-2 tbsp if you want it to taste like the restraunt's version. Also, theirs has crisp bacon pieces tossed in. Gooooood stuff!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F Bake the potatoes until tender,about 1 hour. Cool and cut them into 3/4-inch squares. Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste in a medium bowl.
  2. Heat about 1 inch of oil in a deep skillet or small pot until a deep-fry thermometer reads 325 degrees F. Fry the potatoes until golden brown and crisp, about 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Combine the potatoes with the mayonnaise mixture, taste, and season. Serve warm.
  4. Serve immediately; the salad does not hold well for long periods.
