German Fried Potatoes

Oktoberfest is a 2-3 week festival held each year in Germany at the end of September and early October. It is rich in cultural history and not only celebrated in Germany, but all over the world, especially here in Australia.

I was unable to attend any of the festivities surrounding Oktoberfest and as such decided to have our own mini celebration, in the comfort of my own home!

Imade Pork Schnitzel, Saukraut (I always grate a Granny Smith apple into the cabbage) and Fried Potatoes, the latter which I thought was worth sharing with you to help aid your own German festivities – maybe not this year, so perhaps for next! It is quite simple, but incredibly delicious!

What Will I Need?

2 large Potatoes, sliced into 3-5mm slices
2 Rasher Bacon, diced
2 small onions, diced.
2 tbs Oil

What now

1.      Heat the oil in a large frypan over a high heat until the oil is hot.

2.      Add onions, bacon, and potatoes and cook for 15-20 minutes, flipping the sliced potatoes every few minutes to ensure each slice gets cooked thoroughly and turns a wonderful golden brown colour. This may take a little longer, depending on the size of your frying pan.

3.      Serve with Schnitzel and Saukraut. Prost!
