Here I show you my Potato Cheese recipe. The potato cheese or original potato cheese is a popular spread from Upper Austria and Bavaria.

This spread is easy to prepare. So if you want to score with regional cuisine, you can quickly and easily conjure up this nice spread to eat with your guests.

The potato cheese goes well with a good snack. Other delicious vegetarian spreads, such as herb quark, Liptauer, Obazda and vegan lard, also bring variety to your evening meal.

2. Potato Cheese Preparation Step by Step

To give the potato cheese a special consistency, we use soft-boiled, floury potatoes for the base.

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.

Preparation Time

30 Min.

Cook Time

15 Min.


500 g Potatoes (I use floury potatoes.)
150 g cream cheese
150 g Sour cream
4 tbs fried onions (fried onions ready or with 2 fresh onions 4 tablespoons of oil to prepare yourself )
1/2 tsp Salt
8 pinch Pepper
4 pinch nutmeg
8 pinch caraway grounded
2 - 4 tbs chives rolls
1 pc clove of garlic


Peel the potatoes and set aside 2 or 3 potatoes raw for the fried potato cubes.

Cut the rest of the potatoes into small pieces and cook them covered with salted water until soft.

Pour the softly cooked potatoes into a sieve and leave to evaporate for approx. 5 minutes in the pot on the hot stove top.

Finely crush the evaporated potatoes with a potato masher or press them through the potato press. Let the mashed potatoes cool down.

Add the cream cheese and sour cream to the boiled potatoes, fried onions, salt, pepper, nutmeg and caraway and mix quickly.

Cut the remaining raw potatoes into approx. 0.5 cm cubes.

Blanch potato cubes for 2 minutes at 170°C in hot oil (pre-fried).

Remove the potato cubes from the hot oil and allow to cool.

After approx. 10 minutes, fry the potato cubes again for approx. 4 minutes until crisp and light brown.

Add half of the potato cubes to the potato cheese, arrange and sprinkle with the remaining potato cubes.

If you want to add garlic to the potato cheese, fry or fry the garlic briefly. This gives the potato cheese a great taste and makes it last longer.
