“Known as gröstl, this is a real hunger-stopper from the Austrian Tyrol and is a wonderful last-minute meal. From BBC Good Food Magazine for ZWT6.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 14 ounces smoked bacon lardons (or use cooked ham)
  • 1 onion, cut into chunks
  • 1 lb cooked potato, cold and cut into small chunks
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seed
  • 1 12 teaspoons hot sweet paprika (if you can't find this use sweet paprika mixed with a pinch of chili powder)
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, roughly chopped


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then fry the bacon and onion together for 10 mins until the bacon is golden. Lift out of the pan onto a plate, then add the potatoes and fry for 10 mins more until golden.
  2. Tip in the caraway and paprika, season well, then fry for another min, stirring to release their fragrance.
  3. Return the bacon and onion, taste for seasoning, then add the parsley. Serve hot.
