This is an unusual side dish, but oh so delicious. I received this recipe from my mother-in-law, who makes it for birthday or other special occasion requests. Cook time includes chilling.

This was very simple to make but not something I'd make again. It was pretty bland and kind of dry. I think if it had some spices in it and maybe a bit more sour cream when served it would be ok. I noticed when I went to serve it after it had been in the fridge it got dried out and I had a lid for my loaf pan.

Great side dish! It was light and creamy with just the right touch of onion. A nice alternative to potato salad. I served it with grilled steaks and salad. I did add a 4th egg, sliced on the top for garnish. My dh and kids said this is a 'keeper'!

This just did not do it for me. It was easy enough to make but it just did not have any real flavour to make it worthwhile.
