Hot German Potato Salad

I'm looking for a recipe for hot german potato salad containing Angostura bitters, bacon, and cornstarch. I got it from a friend's cookbook years ago but lost it. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Hot German Potato Salad

I hope this helps. It may not be the recipe you had, but I think it's probably pretty close. This one calls for flour instead of corn starch. You can change that and use cornstarch in it's place. Enjoy!
