Mayonnaise is the secret behind these comforting spuds from Waynesboro, Tennessee's Brenda Pulley. Not only are they special enough for company, but they're a cinch to whip up on weeknights. Try a batch tonight and use what's left in the next two recipes.

"I love mayo, it makes most recipes amazing..... but these were horrible. Nobody liked them and I had to throw away almost the whole dish---such a waste. The mayo is very obvious in the flavor--def not a secret ingredient."
