GRANDMA LEAFY'S MASHED POTATO SALAD

This was my grandmothers potato salad recipe she made when I was a child sneaking into her kitchen (she lived next door!)in the 1950s.

3 to 4 lbs potatoes, peeled and boiled until soft in salted water
Drain the potatoes and mash with a potato masher. Add in the following ingredients:
1/4 to 1/2 cup cream
1 tbsp butter
1 to 1/2 heavy tablespoons mustard
sugar to taste
vinegar to taste
1 medium onion, chopped
4 hard boiled eggs, 3 chopped and one reserved
Mix the above ingredients into the eggs until blended. Put into a serving dish and garnish with the reserved boiled egg, thinly sliced.
