Classic Mustard Potato Salad Recipe Preparation Instructions:

Boil potatoes in the peel with the whole eggs. Remove the eggs after 10 minutes of boiling, and remove and drain the potatoes when just fork tender. Let eggs and potatoes cool to room temperature. Peel all and refrigerate whole potatoes and eggs until cold. The potatoes will dice and hold up better when cold. Dice the potatoes into 1/4-3/8″ dice. Place into a very large container with a lid. (I have a 4 1/2 qrt glass bowl-shaped casserole with lid that’s perfect.) Crumble the eggs (I do this by squishing them in my hand) and add to the container with the diced potatoes. Very finely (like the size of dill relish pieces) chop the onion, celery and pickles. Add to the potatoes and eggs. Gently stir to mix the ingredients evenly. In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise, mustard, dill pickle juice, cream, salt, pepper and sugar. Whisk until creamy. Pour over potato mixture. Gently stir until the dry particles are coated with the creamy mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. 6- 8 hours is even better. If you like color you can sprinkle some sweet paprika over the top.
