German - #2

Tonight’s dinner is another classic German meal. Brats are well-known, and well-loved by Americans. There are so many varieties of German sausages, but Brats are the only kind I will eat. I paired them with Sauerkraut, of course, applesauce, and potato pancakes. The potato pancakes are made from Nanny Munchinger’s recipe. I bought my sauerkraut in the store, because homemade takes weeks to ferment.

Bratwurst, Sauerkraut, Potato Pancakes and Applesauce

Potato Pancakes:
2 russet potatoes, peeled and grated
1/2 yellow onion, grated
1/4 cup flour
1 egg
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 tbsp. EVOO

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
Spoon 1/2 cup mounds of potato into pan and spread to 1/2" thickness. Pan fry for 6-8 minutes on the first side, and 5-6 on the second side.
This recipe makes about 6 pancakes.

Looks yummy! I don't trust myself to get it right, so I think I'll make the potato pancakes with my mom when I go visit her next week!
