"I did reduced the amount of sugar by half as I prefer a more savory potato salad, but my family enjoyed it very much."

"This is my favorite German Potatoe salad recipe. The cooked dressing is also great on cooked cabbage. I use the salt and sugar accoring to my taste. A little more salt and sugar till I get it the way I want it. A keeper recipe"

"The recipe is missing a part. When the drippings are reserved, the onion is sauted in them & then combined in a large bowl with the bacon & potatoes."
