Bumipo's (Buttermilk Potatos)

Total Time

The Potatos with buttermilk are from my home Mecklenburg. In the area of Cologne they eat green beans with buttermilk in a soup. So here is a Marriage of them both.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the potatoes and beans in salted water for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Gently fry the onions and bacon until fragrant and nicely coloured.
  3. Pour away most of the water from the potatos but not all and add the bacon, onions and parsley.
  4. Mix the buttermilk with the tsp of flour and add this to the potatos stirring slowly.
  5. Buttermilk will generally curdle when heated. The flour mixed into it will prevent that.
  6. Season with Salt, Pepper and Savoury Herb (Sariette/ Bohnenkraut).

This recipe is delicious. Kind of like an unusual vichyssoise that is eaten straight off of the stove. Served with a side of Fried Chicken when I made it but it could be a one pot meal with shredded chicken or ham cubes along with the bacon.
