“I picked up a plate on the kitchen table and began to load it with fried rabbit, potato salad, a green-bean-and-mushroom dish, and thick slices of homemade bread, the source of one of those delicious odors I’d smelled.” ~Cross Justice by James Patterson
1 1/2 pound round red or white potatoes (about 6 medium), peeled

1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
Paprika, if desired
