Today I made my favorite German dish: Bratkartoffeln which just translates to "fried potatoes". They are really hard to make and I'm far from perfect but I'm slowly discovering the secrets:
- start by frying fatty bacon, then remove the bacon pieces from the pan and fry the potatoes in the bacon fat. Later add them back (you take them out, so they don't burn in between).
- The smaller the potato pieces the more fat can stick to each piece (this is also why McDonalds fries have so many more calories than Burger King fries). You want them to be so greasy that after dinner the next thing you want to do it to eat a dish washer tab.
