German Fried Potatoes w Egg

Recipe by Leonora Schaft

Serves 4


  • 1kg potatoes
  • 1 onions
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 table spoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ tablespoon majoran
  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling water for about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on size.
  2. Leave to cool (they should be properly cooled down), then peel and slice.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan (not too hot!) and add the potato slices to the pan.
  4. Do not overfill the pan and do not season the fried potatoes yet.
  5. Turn or shake occasionally.
  6. Fry over medium heat until the potatoes are golden brown. This takes about 15 minutes.
  7. Only now season with salt, pepper and marjoram.
  8. Fry the onion in a separate pan and add to the potatoes when onions are done.

For the Fried Eggs

  1. Melt some butter in a frying pan, carefully put the eggs in and salt them lightly.
  2. Allow to set briefly, then add approx. 50 ml of water to the pan and close it with a lid so that the fried eggs can be cooked to completion.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
