Happy Mother's Day from Pizza and Pajamas

My Mom always cooked in her slippers. Still does. Coming home from work it was a natural transition for her to take off her work shoes and put on her slippers – before doing even more work! Our Moms work hard, and on this Mother’s Day 2007 – I/we say - Thank you Mom! The following recipe is my family favorite.

My Mom's Easy Potato Salad

8 medium red potatoes, cooked, cut up
1 medium onion, minced
1 large stalk (2 small) celery diced small
1 ½ teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon coarse black pepper
4 to 6 slices bacon fried
1 cup granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon dry mustard
½ cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup water
2 eggs beaten
2 hard-boiled eggs

Cook potatoes, drain and cut up while warm. Add potatoes to a large mixing bowl, combine with onion, celery, salt and pepper. Set aside. Fry bacon in medium pan. Reserve bacon grease in pan. Drain bacon. Crumble bacon into potato mixture.

Combine sugar and dry mustard in medium bowl. Stir vinegar and water together in small measuring cup and then add to the sugar and dry mustard mix. Use a wooden spoon to blend. Add the 2 beaten eggs to this mixture and mix together well. Heat the reserved bacon grease on medium heat and stir this sugar/egg mixture into the bacon grease until mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Pour over potato mixture. Toss to mix well.

Refrigerate. Before serving, peel and dice hard-boiled eggs and sprinkle over potato salad. Better the second day.
