Grandma’s Potato Salad ⭐️

From McGough's Recipes


For 3-4 Servings

  • 4 Potatos
  • 1 Onion diced
  • 2 Cup Miracle Whip Adjust to preference
  • 1/4 Cup Mustard (Normal Heinz Mustard) Adjust to preference
  • 4 Eggs (3 Diced 1 Sliced)
  • Black Pepper


  1. Boil whole potatoes with a bit of salt in the water. (Put the potatoes in cold water and bring to boil. Then boil until tender but not falling apart)
  2. Cut the potatoes in fairly big size pieces. If they are cut too small, the potato salad can get mushy. If you want a small batch, do 2-3 potatoes. A large batch do more.
  3. Make hard boiled eggs (put eggs in a pot and cover with cold water, then bring to a boil. Remove from heat and leave in the hot water for 10-12 min. Then rinse and soak in cold water to stop cooking). Do 2-6, depending on the size of the potato salad.
  4. Dice up a onion. Put more or less in depending on how much onion you like.
  5. Slice the cooled potatoes, add diced onion and diced eggs.
  6. Mix the mustard and Miracle Whip to make the base. May substitute for mayo and sugar but Miracle Whip is preferred. Stir as much in as you like.
  7. Mix the potatoes, onion, diced egg, and mustard Miracle Whip mix and fold over till all is evenly coated.
  8. Slice some eggs for the top.
  9. Sprinkle a little black pepper on the top. That's only because it makes it look cute.
  10. Add lots of love!!!

When you make it a few times you'll learn how many potatoes to use, how much onion, etc.
