Hot German Potato Salad
Linda Larsen

The flavors of Germany and surrounding regions of Europe that we love include pork, especially smoked pork, cabbage, paprika, sauerkraut, apples, onions, cream, dill, caraway, sausages, beer, butter, and root vegetables. Sausages, of course, are probably the most famous food from Germany. These recipes are flavorful and delicious, designed to satisfy even the heartiest appetite.
