German Potatoes with Parsley Recipe

German potatoes in Germany are called bratkartoffeln. This favourite potato side dish is often served with schnitzel, pork or just about anything. If you are looking for another way to serve potatoes this recipe is for you

These ever so tasty potatoes are slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside seasoned with an onion parsley butter sauce. Traditionally the potatoes are fried in butter or oil making them absorb a lot of fat. In this recipe, they are boiled first and then cooked in the sauce. Cooking them this way will cut back on fat absorption and still keep the same flavour. For a variation of German Potatoes, you can add caraway, marjoram or bacon
