    Inge 1505's Note:

    A quick German favorite from leftover potatoes. The tricks to sucess are cold potatoes, a good non-stick pan and PATIENCE. - Make it a main dish by using onion and bacon or a side with potatoes only. Good with fried meat. Best use firm potatoes, others might cook to mush.

    Units: US | Metric

    For garnish


    1. 1
      Cut potatoes into evenly thick slices (about 3/16 in ).
    2. 2
      Use a large pan that will hold potatoes in a single layer or use two pans.
    3. 3
      Heat oil over medium high heat.
    4. 4
      If using bacon and onion fry together until onion is translucent.
    5. 5
      Add potatoes, stir once to mix and then be patient!
    6. 6
      DON'T stir until potatoes are nicely golden brown on the bottom, 3-5 minutes, only check for color occasionally.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle with half the salt. Use less salt when using bacon.
    8. 8
      Turn and fry the same way on the other side until nicely gold-brown.
    9. 9
      You might need to add a little more oil to the pan if all the oil is soaked up by the potatoes.
    10. 10
      Taste with salt and pepper.
    11. 11
      Serve sprinkled with parsley.

      I used sliced canned potatoes, well drained. Only used a spray of canola oil on each side of the slices and they browned beautifully -Had the elec stove set at 6 and it took about 10 minutes each side. Lovely do again recipe

      I had a bunch of cooked potatoes left over from a pig roast last weekend so used those. I followed the recipe but didn't use any of the optional ingredients. Hubby really enjoyed them.

      Potatoes are my downfall!! These were delicious -- I used my old iron skillet, which seems somehow better for comfort food than modern pans!! I used the bacon and onion as indicated, and I did leave the potatoes to brown underneath, but the pan was too large to turn it over. My fault -- but I turned them all over a few times, and they fried beautifully. Sehr wohlschmeckend und appetitanregend! Vielen Dank!
