We may be past the 4th of July, but the summer entertaining season is just heating up! If you’re like me, you like to have that go-to crowd pleasing dish that you can whip up for impromptu BBQs and get togethers. I recently discovered Mario Batali’s Warm Potato Salad while watching The Chew and I’ll admit, I got a little excited. Why? The recipe calls for NO mayo (the main reason I am not typically a potato salad fan) and it includes fried eggs. Fried eggs is one of my favorite foods so I knew I had to give this recipe a try. See Mario whip it up here:……….
And here is my version:
WARM POTATO SALAD based on Mario Batali’s recipe, a few alterations
2 pound Tiny New Potatoes
2 teaspoon Balsamic Vinegar
1 tablespoon Whole Grain Mustard
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil plus 1 tablespoon
Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper
Handful of Chopped Fresh Parsley
-Bring a salted pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes & cook until just tender. Drain and allow to cool. Once cool enough to handle, slice them in half. Place them all in a large bowl.
-In a pan add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and fry each egg. Remove from heat when cooked and thinly slice.
-In another bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar, mustard, a pinch of salt and a few grinds of freshly ground pepper, and whisk in the olive oil. Pour over the potatoes, then add the parsley and sliced eggs. Toss everything to coat, and serve warm.
Hostess Tip: You can even make this ahead of time, just warm in the microwave before you serve.
