Hot German Potatoes and Knockwurst

Hot German Potatoes and Knockwurst created by angjula

Bratwurst can also be used in this one-dish meal. From Hoffman's "Pot Luck".

Ready In:



  • Cover potatoes with water in a medium saucepan. Bring to boil; simmer until tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain, cool slightly, and cut into slices. Place slices into a large heatproof bowl.
  • Fry the bacon in a medium saucepan over medium heat until almost crisp. Add the onion and cook until translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Mix in the flour, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir in the vinegar, broth, and celery seeds. Cook, stirring often, until thickened.
  • Meanwhile, heat the knockwurst according to package directions; cut each into 6 to 8 diagonal slices. Add the knockwurst to the potatoes. Pour the sauce over and toss to coat. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve warm.

    Being culinary trained, and having traveled to Germany quite frequently in the past, I decided to make this sauce. Without question, this is as authentic Bavaria cuisine as it gets. I would be curious to know the origin of the recipe.

    Absolutely delicious! I loved it. I sliced and then cooked the potatoes, also used smoked kielbasa . it was awesome. the Smoked flavor went really great with the other spices.

    We are at our cabin, recovering from surgery, planning a dinner for friends who have helped us. Having to improvise. Have small boneless p chops, cutting each in half, brown and bratwurst which I may simmer in a good German Lager for extra flavor, before combining everything else. I will double the sauce for sure. Need to serve 15 people. Will use our nesco roaster. Think I will crisp up potatoes too as one suggested. And have to use Dejon M. and serve with Cole Slaw and Apple Strudel Looking forward to this dish. Thank you.

    This is the second time I have made this recipe and plan on making it again . My family loves it! I made a change tonight by frying the potatoes instead of boiling them. It is delicious either way. I do make almost double the sauce amount called for in the recipe. But I also increase the number of potatoes by 2 or 3 for our larger family. The flavor is robust and savory.
