Shortcut Tater Salad & Weird Mamas

Shortcut Tater Salad & Weird Mamas

Don’t go telling Mama I said this but she has kind of a weird life. You see, Mama has a lot of drop ins. Now that isn’t weird in and of itself but when I tell you a little more about what those drop-ins demand here in a minute you’ll see more what I mean.

To let you in on how my Mama works a little more, I want to tell you about a little family dinner we had at Mama’s house last night. For this little family dinner my mother served:

Fresh fried corn, homemade mac and cheese, cornbread, mashed potatoes, pintos, slaw, meatloaf, kraut and weenies, garden tomatoes, pickles, banana pudding, and fresh cantaloupe.


  • 32 ounce package frozen Southern style hash browns (the little cubed ones)
  • 3 eggs, hard-boiled and chopped
  • 5 strips bacon, cooked crispy and crumpled
  • 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • ⅓ cup sweet relish or diced sweet pickles
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
