The traditional “Erdäpfelgröstl” or Fried Potatoes with Sausage (and Bacon)
is simple and down to earth yet still tasty. It fortifies and is somewhat simpler than the famous “Tiroler Gröstl”. Quick and easy to make, the “Erdäpfelgröstl” is still the perfect dish for using leftovers. So … time to get the pans out!



  • 1 kg potatoes (boiled and sliced)
  • 1 onion (finely chopped)
  • oil
  • 200 g sausage (chopped into small pieces)
  • 100 g bacon (chopped into small pieces)
  • salt
  • pepper

Directions for Fried Potatoes with Sausage

  1. Cook, peel and slice potatoes.
  2. Peel and finely chop onions and fry in oil in a pan.
  3. Chop sausage and bacon into small pieces and mix with the cooked, sliced potatoes. Fry on a high heat for about 3 minutes. Season and serve.


Adding 200 g of greaves (a little like crackling) to the Fried Potatoes will create a special taste experience. Kohlrabi may also be used instead of the potatoes – cooking it in salted water with a little curry seasoning gives it a nice yellow colour and makes it look a little like potatoes. This dish is also often known as FALSCHES GRÖSTL (FALSE GRÖSTL) and is a great low carb version.


The woodcutter’s pan is a classic item from the product range and is a real eye-catcher in any kitchen. It gets its rustic-sounding name from its simple yet attractive wooden handle. Thanks to the brass ring at the end of the handle, the pan can be hung up, as well as stacked, for storage.

The woodcutter’s pan from RIESS is a great option for frying and then serving food directly from the pan, and it ensures that there is a great atmosphere at the dining table. Our woodcutter’s pan is also great to use as a serving pan and it leaves you with less washing up afterwards. The woodcutter’s pans come in black, various colours and cast-iron. They are also always available in several different sizes.

We love it!


It is cut and scratch resistant, easy to clean and does not change the taste of the food prepared in it – porcelain enamel has many advantages. The RIESS family, who lived in Austria, thought the same thing almost a long time ago when they began making tableware from this easy-care material in 1922.

Handmade with LOVE…

… this thought applies not only to us when we are cooking, but also to RIESS. The RIESS-Emaille manufactory in Ybbsitz in the Lower Austrian Mostviertel is the only cookware manufacturer in Austria and meanwhile the family business is well known far beyond its borders. In addition to kitchen utensils in classic white, there are pots, strainers, bowls, cups and the like in delicate pastel colours as well as animal and flower designs – so there is something for every taste.

The various products of „RIESS-Emaille“ made it all over the world to cult lifestyle objects.
