4. Potato Cheese Preparation Step by Step

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

We also fry potato cubes crispy.

These give the spread a fantastic taste in combination with roasted onions.

If you want to keep your prepared 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 cheese fits to a hearty snack with pretzels and music 😉
