Danni Rose gives our taste buds a reason to sing with another satisfying southern dish.
Just in time for summer BBQs and picnics, Danni Rose shares her delicious potato salad recipe that will have your friends and family asking for seconds and maybe thirds.
She starts off as usual making us laugh as she walks us through the recipe.
“Please use russet potatoes…don’t be using no red potatoes or baby dutch…use a hearty potato.” Danni Rose, Stove Top Kisses
Danni instructs the at-home chefs to clean and dry the potatoes. She then starts to peel the potatoes and tells viewers how her mom would peel them by hand.
“If you want it to turn out right then you have to follow your ancestors…everybody got a little Black ancestor in them whether its 1%, 2% whatever you always want to peel your potatoes by hand.” – Danni Rose
Danni dices the potatoes and puts them in water. Once all the potatoes are diced, she drains the starchy water. She fills the pot with fresh water just covering the potatoes.
She adds one of her secret ingredients to the pot- chicken stock.
“We are going to boil the water ya’ll for about 6 minutes…it doesn’t take long ya’ll,” the comedy cook explains.
Once boiled, drain the water and make sure to completely cool your potatoes by placing them in the fridge. “Work with cold potatoes ya’ll not hot potatoes.”
“The perfect texture of potato salad ya’ll is not too creamy and not too crunchy.”
Next, it’s time to boil the eggs.
Danni covers her eggs with water and adds some salt. Once it boils she takes it off the heat and puts a lid on the pot. Let the potatoes sit for 14 minutes.
“So honey turn your timer on… 14 minutes, you’re going to have beautiful eggs every time if you do it this way.” – Danni Rose
The eggs then get covered in water and ice to stop them from cooking, about 30 minutes. Danni then saves time by cutting the eggs in half length-wise before peeling them. She uses a spoon to scoop the hard-boiled egg out of the shell. This is a genius time-saver.
The next step is all about creating Danni’s signature potato salad flavor.
She suggests using a good mayonnaise such as ‘Duke’s Real Mayonnaise.’ To that, she adds mustard, sugar, and paprika.
“Don’t be tryin to get fancy…just regular mustard, sugar, paprika and black pepper.” – Danni Rose
The next important ingredient is crucial according to the ‘Stove Top Kisses’ home chef.
Add either ‘sweet salad cubes’ or dice up ‘sweet gherkin’ pickles. “Yes honey!!!”
After the addition of the sweet salad cubes or diced baby gherkins, it is time to stir the dressing.
Danni adds her eggs to the dressing. While stirring the dressing, she checks the seasonings again. Next, add half the potatoes.
“This is another tip…add half of your potatoes and just fold them around.”
Again, adjust spices before adding the remaining potatoes.
“I put it into my bowl here…that ole skool casserole bowl ya’ll know what I’m talkin about….and now we are going to decorate it” – Danni Rose
Danni finishes off her absolutely decadent southern potato salad recipe with the remaining hard-boiled egg. She slices it and places the egg on top of the potato salad. YUM!
If you try this recipe you won’t regret it and you will be laughing the whole way through.
