3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled

1 large egg

2 celery ribs, finely chopped

1⁄4 green bell pepper, diced

1⁄4 medium yellow onion, diced

1⁄4 cup sweet relish

1⁄4 cup diced sweet pepper

1⁄4 cup sugar

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1⁄2 cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard


1. Bring the potatoes to a boil in a large pot of water and boil until soft, 25 to 30 minutes.

2. Drain the potatoes, mash them a bit (you want them to remain slightly lumpy), and set them aside to cool.

3. Meanwhile, bring a small saucepan of water to a boil and boil the egg for 15 minutes. Allow the egg to cool, then peel and finely chop it.

4. Stir together the egg, celery, bell pepper, onion, sweet relish, and sweet pepper in a medium bowl.

5. Stir the sugar, salt, and pepper into the cooled mashed potatoes.

6. Stir the vegetable mixture, mayonnaise, and mustard into the potatoes. Mix thoroughly and serve.
