Traditional Potato Recipes

German Potato Salad Recipes


Included are recipes to use as side dishes, such as the traditional fried potatoes, BratkartoffelnThese make a delicious lunch, especially when served in the Berliner-style as Hoppel Poppel.

For me, this was just the delicious way my Mutti made our lunch using leftovers. It wasn't until just a few years ago that I found out that this yummy potato dish actually had a name and a recipe. An unusual name at that! 

Chunky Potato Soup is a great quick soup to make for lunch. So hearty and so easy to alter according to your own tastes. Potato Pancakes are a treat that can be served anytime of day. Using the blender makes it quick and easy

You can have either hot, warm, or cold potato salad - all especially great with new potatoes. There's also one recipe that includes sweet potatoes!

My all-time favorite potato dish is Potato Dumplings. They are always a treat and are usually served when company comes!

Don't forget to have instant potato flakes on hand in your cupboard as well. They're great to use as a thickener in soups as well as for emergency mashed potatoes.
