This was a very flavorsome dish. I fried some kielbasa in some bacon grease and put it in the potatoes in the end. It would be good with or without. Thanks for posting this lovely recipe.

This really got my attention! I wanted to make something a little different and this was it! Just the right blend of flavors. Now my standby German Potato Salad recipe!

Delicious! I boiled the potatoes whole and then when cooled enough to handle, I sliced them about 1/4" thick and placed them in a casserole dish. After I made the onion, bacon and sauce mixture, I poured that over the potato slices in the casserole, stirred to coat the potato slices thoroughly, and kept it warm in the oven until ready to serve with grilled brats. YUM!
