"Once you try this one, you won't care why Yankee Doodle stuck a feather in his cap and called it macaroni. The video features the history of macaroni in America. Long time family recipe credited to Leo Howard. Damn Yankee yummy!"

Why I Love This Recipe

Leo makes huge batches and delivers to his family and my family. It is gone within 24 hours. A huge food favorite of Bob & Lori Erne.

Ingredients You'll Need

10 hard boiled eggs, cooled
1 lb. box of Ditallini Macaroni, cooked according to directions
Oregon Tillamook cheddar cheese, cubed
Finely chopped onion, one cup
Chopped dill pickles, one cup
3/8 oz. can of sliced black olives

Dressing Ingredients:
Dill pickle juice, 1/2 cup
1 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1 1/2 cup of Miracle Whip
1 tablespoon of yellow mustard
2 teaspoons of sugar


While Macaroni is boiling, combine eight of the hard boiled eggs (reserving two for later) and the next four ingredients in large bowl. Once Macaroni is al dente, drain and run cold water until pasta is cold. Drain thoroughly and add to the mixture. Gently stir through to combine.

Prepare dressing in separate medium bowl. Mix all dressing ingredients and whip until smooth and thick.

Slice the remaining two hard boiled eggs and carefully top over salad mixture and sprinkle with smoked paprika.

Everything in the summer and tailgates.
