    You think they could be talking about german potato salad, and just have the name confused? It’s baked in the oven. ❓

    Oven??? 😯

    😕 …ahhh…here’s a couple I make:

    KARTOFFELSALAT MIT SPECK…(German Potato Salad With Bacon)

    8 potatoes (dice, boil till tender, drain)
    1 onion (chopped)
    1 lb. bacon (diced)

    Fry diced bacon till crisp. Remove from skillet. Heat 4 T. bacon grease, 1/2 c. water, 1/2 c. vinegar and 1/2 to 3/4 c. sugar, in skillet. Bring to a boil.

    Add thickening made with about 1/2 c water and 1/2 c. flour that has been completely blended together. Stir to incorporate.

    Pour over potatoes and onions. Mix well. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Add dried parsley, if desired.

    Hello mayermanorHere are a few of what I believe you are lookin’ for…hope one of these will do the trick…

    2 beaten eggs
    2 cups milk
    1 Tbs. melted butter
    2 cups flour
    1 Tsp. salt
    1 Tbs. baking powder
    1 Tsp. sugar
    2 cups grated raw potatoes
    1 medium onion miced

    Combine eggs, milk, and butter. In separate bowl, sift flour with salt, adding baking powder and sugar. Add potatoes and onions to egg combination. Gradually add sifted flour and ingredients and blend well. Bake on hot griddle.

    _Or: Bake in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. You will see that the outside edges can get quite crispy. Brush the tops with oil or spray, flip over each pancake and return to the oven. After 5 to 7 more minutes, remove from the oven and lift the pancakes from the pan and on to your plate.

    Makes 12-15 pancakes.

    _Hopefully the following I translated correctly…it was a recipe in German…the “German” conversion is different from the UK & Australian ones.

    _It is best if you have a kitchen scale so that you can do the weights.

    Kartoffelschmarrn (Lower Bavarian)

    1.1 lb potatoes (500 g)
    1/2 cup flour (80 g)
    1 onion
    Sunflower Oil

    Peel potatoes & cook in salted water and leave to cool. Peel the onion and finely chop.

    Run the potatoes through a potato press into a bowl, add onion, salt, & pepper and then blend in the flour.

    Heat oil in a pan and fry the Schmarrn (pancake) …roughly crushing …until a golden brown.

    ***I imagine that you could also bake this as stated in the recipe above.

    -Serve with a simple green salad or sauerkraut.

    The following is not a Schmarrn, but it also could sorta be what you are looking for…

    Potato Kugel (Jewish)

    3 eggs, beaten
    3 cups grated, drained raw potatoes
    1/2 cup flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    3 tablespoons grated onion
    4 tablespoons melted butter

    Peel potatoes, shred coarsely into a large bowl of cold water. Drain and rinse in cold running water. Squeeze firmly into toweling to remove as much water as possible.

    Beat eggs in a large bowl until bubbly. Add potatoes, onion, flour, baking powder and salt. Stir to blend.

    Grease a baking pan. Pour mixture into pan, drizzle top with melted butter.

    Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 1 – 1 1/2 hours until richly browned and crusty. Cut into squares and serve.

    _Just in case you would be interested…since it sounds like you like sauerkraut…here is a little extra I’ll throw in…I even made this yesterday to take to a family cook-out, we enjoy it.

    SAUERKRAUTSALAT MIT SCHINKEN (Sauerkraut Salad With Ham)

    1 lb. sauerkraut (1 lb. can)
    1/2 lb. blue grapes (I use red seedless)
    6 oz. cooked ham

    1/2 cup yogurt
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    1 teaspoon honey

    Rinse and drain sauerkraut; chop coarsely. Wash grapes and cut in half; remove seeds if desired. Cut ham in julienne strips. Gently mix these 3 ingredients.

    Blend dressing ingredients and stir into sauerkraut mixture. Marinate for 10 minutes; adjust seasoning before serving, if necessary.
    Serves 4.

    Sorry to see that you will be closing the site down. I check in quite a bit…just not log on. Will truly miss this site and the friends I have made here. Best wishes to all.

    in reply to: Dick Russells Bar-B-Q …Mobile AL #54707

    I think it would be worth the “short” day trip!!!

    I’d even make the trip a tad bit longer and venture on out to Dauphin Island to enjoy the view & if Skinners is open get some of the items on their menu to go out to the beach and enjoy. …Being you are from Pensacola it might not be as much of a “treat” to you, but ya just might want to check it out.

    in reply to: Happy New Year! #53983

    Hope that everyone has a safe and happy New Year’s Eve…and that 2008 will be a year full of many blessing for each of you and your families.

    in reply to: What’s for Thanksgiving? #53547

    …same ole same ole, only this year the location will be at youngest daughter’s home…I’m going there to prepare the bird and all the fixin’s. The other kids’ families will be carrying in some of the sides and sweets. Will be either 16 or 24 all told (still waiting on the final count to be verified.)

    Here’s wishing everyone a day full of good food, good company, and many blessings to be thankful for.

    I know for a few of us it will be a strange holiday without our loved ones that have passed on, I guess the best thing is to be able to share the good memories that they have left us. I know that in my family we are having a “share the memory” by having each family member bring some photos of special people and special times that we are thankful for.

    in reply to: They’re building a "Golden Corral"…. #53546

    Yep, like I said, most of the time they will be good…there have been a few times we were disappointed…in mainly one location…when they first were opened…otherwise, in all the different areas that I have tried them in, they were good. Have even been known to give out gift certificates to there at times for family members. It is more of a family-style buffet restaurant. All you can eat…yes.

    in reply to: They’re building a "Golden Corral"…. #53544

    …can go either way…most are good, but you can be disappointed at times…just like in most buffet type restaurants. (Yes, most nights there will also be steak as a choice.)

    The prices are “right” for almost any budget. You really have to just make a few trips to make your own mind up.

    I still like Texas Roadhouse and Logan’s if there is the option of choice, and if not having to feed the whole clan. 😉

    No one can cook fish up here in the north. It just doesn’t taste the same.

    …ahh, maybe ya just haven’t looked/ate in the right places…or could it be the fact that it usually isn’t just fresh caught. 😉

    There are good “fish fry mixes” in Krogers, Meijer’s and a few smaller meat markets. Sometimes they are “hid” back around the meat/seafood areas.


    If ya want a cornmeal type ya can mix half & half cornmeal and flour and add the spices ya want…You can also add baking powder to this mix if ya want. (ya can put through the blender if ya want it a lighter texture.)

    Ya can also use a cracker meal in place of the flour.

    If ya want to get “real picky” …find ya some corn flour…which is called “Fish Fry” in southern areas.

    Potato chips (ground), potato flakes, pancake mix, bread crumbs are also other things to experiment with.

    Ya can use milk or buttermilk with an egg beaten to dip fish in before coating…or you can rub the fish with a light coat of mustard…or even some E V Olive Oil & hot sauce, before coating.

    Good luck in finding something to your likin’!

    Wally World…better known as WalMart has the dry small red beans in packages and you can buy the canned red beans in most of the grocery stores…and I have found the dry ones in other stores around here too.
