Way Too Easy Mayo Potatoes

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is another recipe where we never really measure, so here goes. Leftovers are gooood, especially the next day, cold is fine too. We always have this when we fix Corned Beef and No, It's NOT Chinese Lemon Chicken. We sometimes add crumbled crispy bacon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring water to boil in a large saucepan, add salt, vinegar and potatoes.
  2. When water comes back to the boil lower heat and put lid on saucepan.
  3. Cook about 10-15 minutes, test potatoes with a skewer or fork; they should be quite firm still, add onions and cover again. Cook a further 4-5 minutes and test again. Potatoes should be just done but not falling apart (they need a little firmness to keep some shape) and the onions should retain some crunch.
  4. Drain, fold in mayo, avoiding breaking them up too much.
  5. Place in serving bowl and sprinkle chives or dill over top.

A keeper. A little different and quite tasty. Very easy. Followed Sharon123's suggestion and made potato salad from the leftovers. That was good too! Thanks for posting...Janet

Simple and delicious potatoes. Sort of like a hot potato salad. I mixed the dill right in. Thanx for a new and different potato recipe!

A different way of cooking potatoes that gives a tang to the finished dish. Very easy to make and a "keeper" for me :)
