Potato Salad with Bacon Bits
6 medium potatoes
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon celery seed
6 hard-cooked eggs, diced
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Cooking Instructions
Place the potatoes into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 20 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. Drain. Cool, peel and dice. Transfer to a large bowl, and toss with the onion, bacon, celery, 1 teaspoon of salt, and hard-cooked eggs. While the potatoes are cooking, whisk together 2 eggs, sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a saucepan. Stir in the vinegar, milk, and mustard. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in the butter. Refrigerate until cool, then stir in the celery seed and mayonnaise.
