Mom had several fried potato recipes ("Bratkartoffeln"), all variations on the one listed below. The aroma in the house was mouth-watering when she made these. For her, these were quick and easy lunch recipes. For me? I just love pan fried potatoes!
If you're a camper, make these over a campfire. Just be ready to feed the rest of the campers as they come because of the aroma wafting through the air!
If you are using raw potatoes, cut into thin slices (peeled or unpeeled). If using cooked potatoes, either dice (small or large) or slice (fairly thickly). The raw potatoes will take a little longer to cook.
Check the hints below the recipe for additions to this traditional German food!
There are so many recipes using potatoes, but this is truly among the most popular.

Here's what some of my fans say:
Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!
Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.
Gaby S: This is in my oven right NOW!!! Can't wait to try it!
Sunetra C: Das sieht aber lecker aus.
Debbie M: These will certainly be a hit. My 89 year old mother-in- law will love them.
