These German style fried potatoes are pure comfort food. So easy to make and sure to be a family favorite.
This weeks theme at Sunday Supper is Oktoberfest. When I was younger, I never missed this celebration but it was mostly about beer, friends and having a good time. So I’m not up on German food too much. So while perusing recipes I came across Bratkartoffeln (please don’t ask me to pronounce it) which is German pan fried potatoes. I thought I can handle that especially as it involves bacon. So today I offer you my fried potatoes German style.
German Style Fried Potatoes
This is a simple recipe that involves bacon, onions and potatoes. I feel like every week I am putting up a bacon recipe. Last week it was bacon wrapped stuffed chicken, and before that loaded smashed cauliflower bites. I think I better start cutting back. Maybe tomorrow. 😉
Why You should make this & a few notes
- It’s super easy and only takes 3 ingredients.
- It has bacon. Need I say more.
- It goes great with beer especially the day after 😉
- Microwave your potatoes first to make them soft inside and crispy outside.
- Use a good thick bacon if you can.
This is pure comfort food for me. I even ate a little with a fried egg for breakfast the next day. I hope you like these German fried potatoes and for more good German food scroll down to see what the Sunday Supper family has for you. Thanks for Cricket of Cricket’s Confections for hosting!
