1. Potato Cheese Shopping List for the Supermarket
Here is the shopping list for potato cheese:
- potatoes (floury potatoes)
- cream cheese
- sour cream
- fried onions or fresh onions and oil
- garlic (this is optional)
- salt and pepper
The exact quantities of the ingredients can be found below in the recipe potato cheese.
2. Potato Cheese Preparation Step by Step
To give the potato cheese a special consistency, we use soft-boiled, floury potatoes for the base.
We also fry potato cubes crispy. These give the potato cheese a fantastic taste in combination with roasted onions.
If you want to keep your potato cheese in the fridge for 2-3 days, you are well advised to fry the garlic briefly. By frying, the garlic becomes durable and does not ferment.
The potato cheese fits to a hearty snack with pretzels and music 😉
