Brat Kartoffel is a simple but very tasty way to serve potatoes.
There are not a lot of recipies from my German heritage that get eaten at our house regularly but this one together with a schnitzel are always popular.
I will admit, this recipe WILL NOT grace the pages of Weight Watchers magazine, but you won’t be having them every day, so just enjoy.
To this in about 15 minutes……(almost forgot to take a pic, had started serving, oops!)
1 kg washed potatoes
1 large brown onion (peeled and diced)
6 rashers short cut bacon (trimmed and diced)
Place the whole unpeeled potatoes in a large saucepan of salted water and bring to the boil.
Boil until just tender.
(Keep checking your potatoes by stabbing them with a metal skewer. If they are over cooked they will fall apart too much when you finish them in the pan)
Allow to cool (for at least 2 hours).
Using a small sharp knife, peel the skin off the potatoes, then chop them in to bite size pieces.
In a large pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter with a splash of olive oil.
Add the onions and bacon and cook over medium heat until they are just starting to colour.
Add the potatoes and combine well.
Allow the mixture to cook for approximately 15 minutes until it has all browned to your liking.
Try not to stir to often as this will slow down the browing and increase the risk of the potatoes crumbling too much.
You may have to add a little more butter or oil if the mixture appears to be sticking.
Brat Kartoffel is a perfect companion for sausages, schnitzel or a good piece of steak. This recipe will serve 4 as a side dish, just add a few more potatoes if you want some left to snack on the next day. It re-heats in the microwave really well.
What is your g0-to potato recipe?

No words other than yum. Yu-um. Yummo. I think you get where I’m going with this, yes?
Yep, off to make some I would say! 🙂
Nothing beats the smell (and taste) of onions and bacon. And with soft cooked potatoes, this dish sounds delicious. Especially today in the rain. And funnily enough, we’ve having sausages tonight! Thanks for the inspiration, Alison.
You are welcome. This is a fav at our house with sausages, as neither of my girls like mash! 🙂
On my meal plan asap.
If only I meal planned……..as I work in a supermarket I just grab what tempts me each day most of the time. 🙂
OMG I’m drooling!!! How have I never had these before? I’m so going to make them this weekend! Thanks 🙂
I hope you enjoy them. 🙂
A family fav at our home. We also add diced shallots and occasionally srinkle with crunchy croutons
Funny how old habits don’t change, I have never even thought about adding anything else, but the idea of diced shallots sounds yummy. 🙂
I think I’ll give this a go with my 3 year old – doesn’t matter how I serve it he won’t eat it. This looks tasty, hopefully he goes for it. Thanks for sharing!!
Feeding little ones can be tricky, hopefully this might tempt him. 🙂
Oh yum! Bacon and potatoes, who wouldn’t love that combo?!
Will definitely be trying this one out…on a day when I’m not counting calories 😉
It’s definately not diet food, but soooo yummy! 🙂
