Hi, Cara,

May I ask if you mean cooked bacon or raw bacon?

And how much cornstarch (cornflour)?

avoca, that is raw bacon in the recipe.. but it may taste with cooked, too... and about 2-3 T starch.. it depends on the consistence of the mass..

Thanks, Cara.

It seems odd to use raw bacon, but I will try it.

Thanks again.

This sounds ganz lecker, Cara!! I suppose potatos are better cooked whole with the skin on, like when we prepare gnocchi?
I would like to try it with some speck!!

Cara,
this looks great and I want to try it..Is there a specific type potato you use? How is this served, alone or with something like a soup or salad? I want to make sure I do your recipe just right. Would appreciate any and all advie you can give.

Thanks Cara

kadesma, best is mealy cooking potatoes.. I don't know if you have the same sorts as we have in Germany (Bintje, Margerita, Aula...)...
kartoffelplaetzchen are used as a side order mostly with roasted whatever, wildgame and veal or as a main dish with salad

for a variation you can add chopped nuts, more fresh herbs or grated cheese..

Cara, i'm sure our russet potatoes will work just fine. We are having roasted chicken tomorrow so this will make a perfect side and a nice baby greens salad and somestuffed roma tomatoes will make the meal. Thank you Cara, I can hardly wait for dinner
