Recipe: German Lohplatz – Bacon Potato Cake
Lohplatz is a German dish from Hessen. To be honest I am German and I’ve never eaten or heard of it before. Last friday I had a game night (we played Risk) and I had the chance to eat Lohplatz there. It was delicious so I asked for the recipe. It’s also known under the name Schmiechelskuchen or Salzkuchen.
Basically Lohplatz is a potato cake with rye bread dough as the base and mashed potatoes, quark and sour cream on top. As a finishing touch it is usually topped with poppy seeds, onions and bacon. Sounds good? Then scroll down to get the recipe!
