Grandma's Old-Fashioned Potato Salad Recipe

On Saturday we had a surprise 80th Birthday Party for my MIL so my hubby and I spent 12 hours on Friday cooking and preparing things for the party. I always bring potato salad to the family events and parties because everyone loves the recipe that I use which was given to me by my maternal grandma before she passed away. I am going to share it with my blog readers today. This is our ABSOLUTE favorite potato salad recipe...EVER! It is the BEST!

Grandma's Potato Salad Recipe

6 medium potatoes (cooked and diced)
3 large hard cooked eggs, cooled
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 tsp. vinegar
1/4 cup chopped onions
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. bacon grease
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp. celery seeds
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4-1 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 large egg yolks
1/2 lb. bacon (fried and chopped)
