German Bratkartoffeln Recipe: How to Make German Cottage Fries & Up Your Potato Game

Bratkartoffeln are German fries that are usually cooked with bacon and onion. These crispy German potatoes will make you rethink the french fry. 

You'll need:

  • 4 Yukon Gold potatoes, boiled until tender and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 pound thick-sliced bacon or slab bacon, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • chopped fresh parsley or dill, for garnish

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels, leaving bacon grease in the pan. 
  2. Add the onions to the bacon grease and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Remove the onions with a slotted spoon.
  3. Add the olive oil to the pan with the remaining bacon grease. When hot, add the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until potatoes are browned and crispy, about 15 minutes. 
  4. Put the onions and bacon back into the skillet. Stir to combine and continue to cook until heated through. Garnish with chopped parsley or dill, if desired. Serve.
