Bratkartoffeln mit Wurst und Spiegelei

Certainly! Here’s a recipe for “Bratkartoffeln mit Wurst und Spiegelei,” a classic German dish of pan-fried potatoes with sausage and a sunny-side-up egg:


  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 German sausages (Wurst), such as Bratwurst or Bockwurst
  • 4 eggs
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium heat.
    • Add the sliced potatoes and chopped onion to the skillet.
    • Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are golden brown and cooked through. This may take about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Cook the Sausages:
    • In a separate pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil over medium heat.
    • Add the sausages and cook until browned on all sides and cooked through. The cooking time will depend on the type of sausage you choose.
  3. Fry the Eggs:
    • In the same skillet used for the potatoes, crack the eggs into the pan without breaking the yolks.
    • Cook the eggs until the whites are set, and the yolks are still runny. You can cover the pan with a lid for a minute to help set the egg whites while keeping the yolks runny.
  4. Assemble the Dish:
    • Place a portion of the pan-fried potatoes on each plate.
    • Top the potatoes with a cooked sausage.
    • Carefully place a fried egg on top of each sausage.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
  5. Serve:
    • Serve the “Bratkartoffeln mit Wurst und Spiegelei” hot, and enjoy the delicious combination of flavors and textures!

This hearty and flavorful dish is a perfect representation of traditional German cuisine, combining the crispiness of pan-fried potatoes, the savory taste of sausages, and the richness of a runny egg yolk. Guten Appetit!
