The Cooking Idea

Cooking a traditional German fried potatoes (Bratkatoffeln) in the Philippines is not easy to make as some of the ingredients are not sold in the shops. Ingredients which make this fried potatoes so delicious and spicy. I missed this German fried potatoes that I came to an idea of creating a Filipino-German recipe with the local ingredients that I could buy in the shop. I called it Filipino German fried potatoes.

Some of the ingredients: Potatoes, eggs, onions, longganisa, garlic and hotdogs.

Boiled potatoes leftover are the best in making fried potatoes for a hearty breakfast, lunch or for dinner. Just mix it with whatever leftover meat you have in the fridge or just with beaten eggs and spiced the fried potatoes with salt and pepper.

      Hi poetryman6969! Those were the Philippines hotdogs i used. It seems Filipino sausages are red. Longganisa is a Filipino pork sausage but you can use chorizo if you want to. Yes, crack the eggs at the end of frying. Thanks and happy weekend!

      Those are the reddest hotdogs I have ever seen. I would like to try the dish of course but I would also like to see what longganisa is like by itself.

      Do you add the eggs at the end to avoid overcooking them?

      Very interesting food.

      Hi Thelma,

      This is a very interesting recipe. My son does not eat a lot of vegetables but potatoes is one he loves a lot. Combine it with 2 other ingredients he love - skinless longganiza and hotdogs. Will be trying it out over the weekend. Thanks much, voted up, shared and tweeted.

      Hi Peggy W,

      Yes, Longganisa is a kind of sausage. It is a Filipino sausage made of pork. I sometimes used bacon or just bacon fat for the German fried potatoes for a change and it is very tasty, too. Your comment brings back the memory of my mother-in-law because she used to make this meal with roasted pork and caraway seeds when she was alive. Thanks for your stopping by.

      Hi Thelma,

      I am assuming that Longganisa is some type of sausage? My mother used to make German fried potatoes and simply used some bacon fat for the flavoring instead of putting in other types of meat. Serving them alongside a delicous pork roast with caraway seeds...yum! Thanks for bringing back these memories. Voted useful!

      There is a recipe I know that is quite similar to these. It has no meat, just the potato, bell peppers and onions. It's quite tasty too, I think it's the Greek version.

      I would love to try this with our ingredients here in Jamaica. Thanks for sharing.
