Homemade Potato Salad – A Must Make

Whilst our gardens here in parts of the SE of England are enjoying copious amounts of rain, here at Mums In Real Life, we’re thinking about the summer.

This led to thinking about food (naturally!), a topic never far from our minds.

My Dad always makes this potato salad and it is quite simply, delicious! I have never been able to face buying shop bought potato salad since eating it!

The good news is, it is also super easy to make and we’re sharing it with you!

Ingredients (for 4 people):

3 eggs

5 small potatoes (peeled and cubed)

2tbsp Mayonnaise

3 Fresh Chives

Pepper to season

Method:

Peel and cube the potatoes, place into water and bring up to boil. Once at boiling point, simmer for 10-12 minutes until al dente. Remove from heat and drain. Allow to cool down.

Meanwhile, boil the eggs for 5-6 minutes.

Cool the eggs in cold water, once cooled, peel.

Roughly chop up the eggs and place on top of the potatoes.

Add 2 generous tbsps of Mayonnaise, mix gently. Next up, use scissors to snip the Chives on top.

This is a wonderful accompaniment to any bbq or Salad. Give it a go!

Mini Burgers

Keeping with the holiday theme of fun, fun, fun…it’s now time for little ones to help their Mum!

We rounded off the day with making these cute & tasty mini burgers. Really easy for little hands to make, with plenty of mince left over for us adults to add more seasoning & spice a bit later!

Ingredients:

500g 5% Fat Mince

1 Egg

1 Small onion (finely diced & gently fried – leave to completely cool)

Shop bought Mini burger buns

Method:

Preheat oven to 180•c

Put the Mince, Egg & Onions into a bowl and use clean hands to squelch.

Next, form into little patty shapes and place onto a baking tray (I like to also use baking paper, as I oven cooked these).

Put the burgers into a preheated oven and cook for 15-20 minutes (until cooked through). Plate up and enjoy!

Another seriously simple, interactive family meal time 🙂
