  4. After the potatoes have cooled, remove the skins and dice them into bite sized pieces.
  5. While potatoes are cooking, hard boil 2 eggs. Run the eggs under cold water once they are done cooking to cool them down and prevent them from over-cooking.

Recipe Notes

**Cardinal Rule**  Be careful to not overcook the potatoes.  They should be tender, but you do not want them to be mushy.
