Lots of German Potato Recipes to Give You Tasty Ideas!

Do you love potatoes? Are you looking for a list of amazing potato recipes? Well, then you are in the right place. German cuisine has a number of staple ingredients – and potatoes are definitely one of them. That’s why we’ve ended up creating loads of different German recipes that include potatoes as a key element.

Of course, it’s easy to understand why Germans love their potatoes. Potatoes were (and still are) a relatively easy crop to produce. They are relatively resilient, don’t require excess effort and costs (compared to other crops), have a decent shelf life, and provide quite a bit of nutritional value per yield.
