I make this recipe to serve with Gumbo. When I used to live in Louisiana, my neighbor used to mash up some of the potatoes so I do the same in this recipe. This is not a spicy dish, but is meant to be served alongside Cajun dishes, such as Gumbo. I also call is "Mashed Potato Salad." Depending upon what a "small potato" size is in your area (and I don't mean baby size, just smallish), you will need to adjust the amount of dressing accordingly..some days you will need more, some days less. This recipe is really more of a "eyeball it" type, so please don't take the measurements as an exact science here. Cook time is taking into account cooking your eggs and potatoes, and the prep includes chilling time.
