House warming for my new cast iron pan. What better as a first dish than Tiroler Gröstl!
A delicious, hearty dish from Tirol in Austria. One bite and it teleports you straight on top of an Austrian mountain. If you pull up a picture of a mountain goat on your laptop the illusion is complete ;)


  • 1 onion
  • 800g potatoes
  • 250g bacon [cubed]
  • 2 tablespoons lard [or oil]
  • salt
  • pepper
  • ½ teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons parsley

_ peel potatoes and cook until almost tender
_ finely chop onion
_ cut potatoes into thin slices [about 5mm thick]

_ heat lard and fry potatoes until golden [about 5 minutes]
_ add bacon and onion [fry for another 5 minutes]
[I like to fry the bacon on the side to make sure it’s nice and crispy]

_ meanwhile fry the eggs in a hot pan with a little oil
_ season potatoes with salt, pepper and caraway
_ mince parsley
_ serve potatoes in four little pans
_ sprinkle with parsley and top off with a fried egg
