I hate to be negative and not sure if you will see this. I think vegetarian sausage was the wrong choice to use with this recipe.
Made this today. Used only the 1/2 cup of broth because we did not have any dry white wine and Idahos because that'w what I had. We really like this. It's my recipe from now on for sausage, kraut, and potatoes, which I had always made using only those 3 ingredients. I have found the the sausage makes or breaks it, and use only Eckrich Smoked Sausage or Kielbasa. Others I've tried tasted awful. Thanks for a great recipe.
