6 to 8 medium
1/3 c
1/4 c
1/3 c
finely sliced celery
2 Tbsp
sweet relish
hard boiled eggs
2 Tbsp
finely chopped onion
celery seed
1/2 c
miracle whip


1Peel and cube potatoes into bite size pieces. Boil till tender. Remove from heat and drain. Meanwhile break one egg into small skillet, add the sugar and vinager, stir till mixed, cook on low heat stiring constantly till it thickens. Then put into a bowl and let cool, then add in the miracle whip mixing till smooth. Take the potatoes and but in large bowl, add the chopped onion, and relish, and chopped celery, and chopped boiled egg, gently toss it all together. Then sprinkle the celery seeds and paprika on top.
2If you like you can also add crispy bacon (crumbled) on top. I don't put the onion in anymore because my system doesn't like them anymore. Also instead of adding the whites of the boiled eggs I just use the yoke part. You may if you like also add a little mustard to the sauce mixture. If you like mustard in your potato salad you can also add a teaspoon or so to the sauce mixture. This is a very easy recipe, you can mix other ingredience as to your own tastes. I'm one of those old country cooks that doesn't measure things much I just add a little this and that till it suits my taste. I'm always creating something, usually in the dessert catagory.
