Thursday, 8th December 2011We were looking for something relatively simple and my partner suggested fresh bratwurst. Then I went and complicated it all by making a mustard sauce, potato and onion cakes and a salad with parmesan and bacon.
For the potato cakes I par-boiled some potatoes, then chopped them up with some onions, formed them into thick cakes and fried them very gently in butter for 20 or 30 minutes.
The sauce was just softened onions and garlic, cooked in a little wine for a while, with mustard and cream added at the end and heated through.
This was a very nice meal - I particularly liked the potato cakes.
