Gröstl Recipe - A Taste Of The Mountains

Winter is made for comfort food so when Branded3 invited me to try a recipe from 'Taste Of The Mountains' competition by Ski Total  I simply couldn't say no.
There were three dishes to choose from and I decided to go for Gröstl.
Gröstl is one of Austria's most popular dishes in the winter months. After trying it, I can really see why. It's easy to make, filling and absolutely delicious!


Corn, Sunflower or Vegetable Oil 11⁄2 tbsp

Smoked Bacon Lardons (or cooked ham) 400g

Onion, Cut Into Chunks 1

Cooked Potatoes (preferably waxy ones), Cold & Cut Into Small Chunks 500g

Caraway Seeds 1 tsp

Hot, Sweet Paprika (or mix sweet paprika with a pinch of chilli powder) 11⁄2 tsp

Small Handful of Parsley, Roughly Chopped

4 Eggs (Optional)


Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then fry the bacon and onion together

for 10 minutes until the bacon is browned.

Lift out of the pan onto a plate, before adding the potatoes and frying for

10 minutes more until golden.

Tip in the caraway and paprika, season well, and then fry for another minute,

stirring to release their fragrance.

Return the bacon and onion, taste for seasoning, then add the parsley.

Serve hot, and for a real authentic touch, add a fried egg on top.

 I made this for my friends and they all loved it. It's such a warming dish it almost made us feel like we were out in the alps.
If you try it let me know what you think!

Until next time,
