Originally a way for a Austrian farmers to use up leftovers, this bacon, onion and potato hash recipe, known as Tiroler Gröstl, is now popular comfort food

Cuisine: Austrian
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 1 pound small waxy potatoes, washed
  • 4 - 5 slices thick slab bacon or cooked ham, chopped (or a combination)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon caraway seeds (optional)
  • fried egg (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water until tender, about 20 minutes. Cool and peel, if desired, and slice.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the bacon or ham until crisp. Remove to a paper towel.
  3. To the same skillet (leave the drippings) add the butter. When melted, add the sliced potatoes in a single layer. Add any remaining potato slices to the top. Sprinkle in the chopped onion and meat. 
  4. Cook until the potatoes are golden on the bottom, about 10 to 12 minutes. Flip everything over. Add the caraway seed and salt and pepper. Continue to cook until golden, about 5 to 7 minutes more. (You can add more butter, if needed). 
  5. While the potatoes cook, fry eggs to your liking. Top the crunchy potato mixture with a fried egg.
