Bratkartoffeln ... traditional German fried potatoes ... perfect for leftover meat or some fresh ham! YUM

Bratkartoffeln (fried potatoes) are best made from potatoes you cook the day before. That makes it a quick meal the next day within 30 minutes.

Perfect with leftover meat, or you can use some sliced ham, cook some sausage, or BBQ some hamburgers. Still done within 30 minutes.

Method:

  • Prepare the meat while the potatoes are cooking. Either use leftover smoked pork loin or some other cooked leftover meat. Serve it cold or heat it in the microwave. Even frying up some sausage to go along with the potatoes is a quick alternative to using cooked meat. If the sausage is a cooked type, then it really only needs to be warmed through thoroughly.
  • Prepare the vegetables. If using frozen veggies, cook according to the package instructions. If you have some leftover veggies, just reheat them in the microwave. Using canned vegetables is also a great alternative. This just needs to be warmed up, either in the microwave or on the stove.
  • Sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley or dill to garnish.
  • Serve.

Words to the Wise

"I walked by the field of a lazy person, the vineyard of one with no common sense. I saw that it was overgrown with nettles. It was covered with weeds, and its walls were broken down.  Then, as I looked and thought about it, I learned this lesson:  A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest— then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber."

Proverbs 24:30-34 (NLT)
