  • 2 lbs potatoes peeled and diced
  • 7 hard boiled eggs chopped
  • 1 cup mayonnaise -
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 4 TBSP sweet pickle relish
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Place eggs in a pan covered with cold water. When the water starts to boil, reduce to low and simmer uncovered for 1 minute .
  • Remove from heat and COVER and let stand for 20 minutes. Or you can bake your eggs in the oven for the perfect hard boiled egg!
  • Peel and dice the potatoes into about 1 inch pieces.
  • Cover them with water and bring them to a boil for about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain in a colander.
  • Let the potatoes cool before mixing so they won't crumble. I actually put mine in a bowl in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the other ingredients together.
  • Then add the potatoes and mix gently.
  • ENJOY!!!
