Here is a Unique Recipe to Make on National Potato Day from Krause’s Cafe
There is nothing better than sampling all the varieties that our favorite root can come in – from classic fries to a hearty baked potato. Krause’s Cafe and Biergarten is here to satisfy your potato cravings by offering some fried goodness with their Kartoffel Poppers. These delicious starters are made by grating potatoes and combining them with onions, eggs, flour, and salt. Everything is then fried to perfection and served with applesauce or sour cream. These poppers are available in the restaurant, giving credit to its German heritage. Krause’s has offered German fare for more than 60 years to the New Braunfels community. The restaurant and biergarten, recently featured in Forbes, is a certified Central Texas favorite.
