I discovered this dish, that was known as ‘German Potato’ in Japan, when I was a uni student, and it was decades ago. It is still very popular as ‘German Potato’. I wonder what German people think about this naming of the dish. I know there is a German salad that looks like this dish, but I don’t add Vinegar OR Mayonnaise to this dish. I use Wholegrain Mustard, Salt and Pepper only. That’s what I learned. And you should know that this dish is really good to enjoy with cold beer.


2 to 3 Servings


2 large Potatoes *about 350g
Salt for cooking Potatoes
200g Smoked Sausages *I used Kransky Sausages, cut into bite-size pieces
2-3 rashers Bacon *cut into small pieces
1 to 2 cloves Garlic *finely chopped
1 to 2 teaspoons Oil *I used Sunflower Oil
Salt & Black Pepper
1 to 2 teaspoons Whole Grain Mustard
Finely chopped Parsley

  1. Wash Potatoes very well and cut into chunky bite-size pieces. Cook in salted Water until soft, then drain.
  2. Heat Oil in a frying pan over medium heat, cook Bacon and Sausages until nicely browned.
  3. Add drained Potato pieces, season with Salt & Black Pepper, add Whole Grain Mustard, and combine well.
