  • 6-7 Large boiled eggs
  • 6 large Russet potatoes
  • Smoked Paprika
  • 3 tablespoons Sweet Relish
  • 1 1/2 cup Miracle Whip mayonnaise
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • Real Bacon Bits


  • First, always remember to wash your potatoes before you began preparing them. Then peel the skin off your potatoes.
  • Once you've finished peeling your potatoes you will need to cut them in half.
  • Then, I cut my potatoes into cubes. When they're cut into cubes,  you can fold  them into your ingredients, and you won't have to worry about your potatoes falling apart.
  • Then, you boil your potatoes for about 20 minutes or until fork tender. 
  • Since, I like an eggy potato salad I'm going to boil 7 egg for about 10-15 minutes. I usually only use 6 eggs, but I boil an extra one just in case one doesn't come out properly.
  • Once the eggs have finished boiling and have cooled, I cut them. First, I cut them in half and then I proceed to dice them into smaller pieces.
  • After I finish cutting my eggs, I set them aside and prepare to drain my potatoes.
  • Once my potatoes are finished I drain them over the sink into my colander.
  • Then, in a separate bowl I begin to combine my potatoes and my diced eggs.
  • Next, I add in  3 tablespoons of sweet relish, and 1 1/2 cup of Miracle Whip or any other mayonnaise of your choice. 
  • Add in just a little smoked paprika.
  • Then, add 1 tablespoon of mustard, you can also add an onion it's completely optional. Personally, I don't care too much for an onion in my potato salad.
  • Began to fold over your ingredients add salt, pepper, and a 1 tablespoon  sugar, if you don't like a really tangy potato salad.
  • Continue to fold over until everything is well mixed.
  • Then you  put potato salad into a serving dish and add some real bacon bits. I  may have gone a little overboard, with the bacon but honestly who doesn't love bacon????
