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????
