Becky's Potato Salad:

I love potato salad! This one is a little more time consuming to make, but it's really not hard and it's definitely worth it. I hope you will give it a try! Thank you for the recipe, Becky!

2 quarts cubed white or red potatoes (you can peel them if you want)
1 small onion, chopped
4 hard cooked eggs, chopped

1 egg
1 tblsp. cornstarch

1/4 cup water
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. yellow mustard

1-1/2 tsp. celery seed
salt and pepper to taste

Place potatoes in a large pan - cover with cold water. Cook just until fork tender. Right before the potatoes are done, add the onion. Drain potatoes and onions in a strainer; let stand.

In a 2 cup measuring cup, beat egg and cornstarch. Add enough milk to equal 1 cup; mix well and set aside.

In a small saucepan, combine water, vinegar and sugar. Bring to a boil and boil 90 seconds. Add egg mixture stirring constantly (mixture usually will curdle...this is fine). Bring to a boil and boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and add mayonnaise and mustard. Stir until smooth and well combined. Chill for 10 minutes.

Place potatoes, onions and hard cooked eggs in a large bowl. Add celery seed, salt and pepper. Pour sauce over potatoes and mix until everything is well coated. Chill until ready to serve!

Hey, Emily! So glad you stopped by! Um, the original recipe called for flour, so I have adjusted it to use cornstarch instead. Plus, when I link recipes at link parties, I always mark them gluten-free, so that people just know. Anyone can make any of my recipes, but if you are gluten-intolerant, then they will especially stand out to you! Thanks so much for asking though!!! And I love your blog, by the way! Such a cute name and you have some really awesome stuff on there!
