  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar

  1. Peel and cut potatoes into cubes, as you would for mashed potatoes.
  2. Boil until tender, able to crush with a fork.
  3. Set aside potatoes, don't drain yet.
  4. Cut lemons in half and ream juice removing seeds.
  5. Pour juice into 2 cup measuring cup.
  6. Add cornstarch, sugar, egg, milk and mustard.
  7. Pour into a sauce pan and stir over medium heat. Don't allow mixture to boil. The goal is a smooth liquid that will thicken as you continue to stir mixture.

  9. Sauté onions and celery till tender.
  10. Drain potatoes and pour into a large bowl. Add bacon and pour in the thicken sauce. Mix to completely covered.
  11. This works well with ribs, chicken or ham. Enjoy.
