Mom's potato salad

Makes 6 servings
This is one of the few things from my childhood for which there is no equivalent.  After years of trying many different recipes, I finally asked my mom for hers.  This classic mustard based potato salad is a staple of my summers after the potato harvest.

    1/2 cup milk                                                   
    1/3 cup sugar                                                  
    1/4 cup vinegar                                                
    1 egg                                                          
    4 tablespoons butter                                           
    1 tablespoon cornstarch                                        
    3/4 teaspoon salt                                              
    1/4 teaspoon dry mustard                                       
    1/4 cup chopped onions                                         
    1/4 cup mayonnaise                                             
    7 medium potatoes, cooked, peeled, diced and chilled (6 cups)  
    3 hard boiled eggs, chopped                                    

Combine first 9 ingredients in saucepan.  Cook and stir until thickened; remove from heat.  Blend in onion and mayonaisse, cool.  Combine potatoes and eggs in a bowl and carefully fold in dressing
