Granny's Potato Salad

I think if you were to ask most of my Granny's 50+ grandchildren that they'd beg Granny to make her potato salad every time we are back visiting!  She has, hands down, THE BEST potato salad recipe you'll ever eat!

1 - 5 lb bag red potatoes
1 dozen eggs
2 c mayo/Miracle Whip
1/2 small jar pickle juice
1/2 c sugar
1 t garlic
salt & pepper, to taste
1 t celery seed

Wash red potatoes and boil in pan until you can stick a knife in them and pull it out without trouble.  Leave the skin on while boiling.  Drain and let cool to room temperature.  Peel the skins off once cooled and dice the potatoes into cubes.  Bring eggs to a boil in a pan of COOL water on the stove.  Once they are boiling, let them boil another 5 minutes, then shut the water OFF and leave them set ON the burner for another 10 minutes.  Drain water, cool, peel and cut.  In a bowl, mix the remaining ingredients until well blended.  Pour over the cut potatoes and eggs and mix until all the sauce has coated everything.  If it seems dry, make a little more dressing mixture and add until you like it.  Leave sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes before you refrigerate or eat.
