Bratkartoffeln mit Wurst

Oktoberfest 2013 started this past Saturday, so with that in mind I decided to make the new post German inspired. Today's recipe is my take on the traditional and very famous German dish: fried potatoes with sausages. Simple and delicious!

It's sort of a tapas-style dish to be shared by several people but can also be served traditionally in individual portions.

For two portions you'll need:
I also went to the market and bought some Brezl and traditional Bavarian sweet mustard to go with it, but normal mustard and bread will do just as well.

So the first step is to peel, cut and boil the potatoes until soft (a quick trick if you don't have much time is to put the potatoes in the microwave for about 5 minutes, but if you have time always boil). 
Then, slice and square the sausage and spice the boiled potatoes. 

Warm up a pan with a bit of oil. When warm, put the potatoes in and stir-fry until they start looking golden. Then, add the cubed sausages, cover with a lid, and leave to cook at low/medium heath until the sausage starts browning too (about 5-10 minutes).

When done, turn of the heat and leave in the covered pan settling for about 5 minutes, serve with a cold beer and enjoy with friends!
