I used Bratwurst instead of smoked sausage, I increased the onion, reduced the brown sugar, deleted the bell pepper and pimiento. I used the water from the boiled potatoes (the help thicken-so did not need as much flour) With all that being said, I liked it, but probably would not make it again. I typically love German potato salad, but I think, this got lost with the cheese and sausage all mixed in with it. I don't know what I was expecting, but it seemed to "cassarolie" I I enjoyed making it and felt inspired to try some other German food.
