Serves 6-8

This old fashioned German dish of apples and potatoes makes a hearty winter side dish, or with the addition of some fried or poached eggs, a tasty breakfast hash.


  • Baby Potatoes 2 lb, washed and halved
  • Apples 2 lb, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
  • Vegetable Oil 1 Tbs
  • Kielbasa or Bratwurst Sausages 2, cut in half moon slices
  • Wholegrain Bread 2 slices, processed into crumbs
  • Dried Thyme 1 tsp
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste

Cook It


  1. Put the potatoes into a large saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil, then lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are fork tender.
  2. Add the apples and cook for a few minutes more, until apples start to soften.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the sausages and fry until starting to crisp. Drain on paper towel.
  4. Add the breadcrumbs and thyme to the skillet and fry in the sausage fat until golden.
  5. Drain the potatoes and apples. Combine with the sausages in a serving dish, season with black pepper and sprinkle the toasted breadcrumbs over the top.
