I can't vouch for any authenticity in this recipe, but my grandmother says it's German. I can tell you it's delicious with Wienerschnitzel.

Nice side dish- served with chicken kabobs. Tried to lighten up by not cooking in bacon grease (used pam instead) and used baby yukon golds-which already have nice buttery flavor! Thanks for posting :)

Two thumbs way up from myself, hubby, and 2 year old son. This was a great side dish for our meal tonight! Made for ZWT. Thanks for the great recipe that I will definitely be making again in the future!
