Bratwurst with German Style Potatoes



We had some wonderful Bratwurst in Munich at a beer garden, unfortunately it was raining that day so we weren't in the garden. Der Hofbräukeller is one of Munich's biggest beer garden restaurants. It is known for traditional Bavarian food and even has a place for kids to play in a supervised area. 





This is a wonderfully easy meal to put together after making it I realized I didn't have any mustard, so asked my sweet neighbor for some. She is of German decent and tried the potatoes and approved of them :-) 

Ingredients:

  • 10 small new potatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste - a pinch 
  • one tablespoon of white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/4 of a red pepper diced 
  • a pinch of mustard seeds, I used black ones as we use them a lot in Indian cooking ;-) 
  • 1/4 red onion diced
Method:

  1. boil the potatoes with the skins 
  2. heat a little canola oil and pop the mustard seeds 
  3. add the onion and pepper and saute for 3 minutes
  4. add the potatoes, white balsamic, parsley, salt and pepper 
  5. serve with bratwurst I simply boiled, my neighbor gave me a great tip to boil in 1/2 beer and water and streamed vegetables 



outside the restaurant, they was a cool street art exhibit at the time, with special lions around the city. 

Do you have any German recipes to share?

  2. If you German neighbor approved, they have to be good. My grandfather was first generation German and loved his potato salad.

  5. Looks delicious. Love potatoes this way as well, MUCH better than the Southern style potato salad.
    I only made one German type dish, with apple vinegar, red cabbage and nigella seeds one time but that was one time many years back. Dont know much about the cuisine.

  10. When visiting Germany decades ago, I ate Kartoffeln Salat and Weisswurst all the time (accompanied by copious quantities of beer of course). I found fresh wurst here in DC recently (not pre-cooked) at a German deli. Surprisingly they were quite bland. Go figure.

  16. Nothing like some vinegar with the potatoes to turn them into something delicious! I love meals like this, but don't make them very often. My mother was German and made meals like this often for us.
