Authentic German Potato Recipes

"Mmmm, these German potato recipes are delicious, try them today"

Everyone loves them, however, have you cooked any German potato recipes? Here I have listed my favourite recipes. Potato dumplings, german potato salad, parsley potatoes as well as the mashed variety.

Potatoes are low in fat and a great source of fibre. They are very nutritious and packed with vitamins such as vitamin C and B1 and potassium. Potatoes are a great food for children and the whole family to enjoy.

Make sure you store them properly though:
A cool, dark place is best.
Make sure it's well-ventilated to avoid any greening.
Remove potatoes from plastic bags.
Don't store in the fridge or next to any strong-smelling foods.

The Germans are big fans of the spud, especially the fried kind (Bratkartoffeln). Or just plain boiled (Salzkartoffeln).

My children are particularly fond of mashed potatoes (Kartoffelpuree) and for a change we add different ingredients such as carrots, garlic or herbs.
