Jacket potatoes and salads – Pellkartoffeln und Salate

Deutsch Jacket potatoes with salads were in my childhood an integral part of our diet. First the salads came from the delicatessen corner of the supermarket and were then so little by little replaced by self-developed recipes. Those were my mother’s recipes, but she has never told me.

Fleischsalat

Deutsch The direct translation meat salad is misleading. It’s not made with meat but with Lyoner, a very finely grounded boiled sausage from pork, veal or poultry, often in a mixture of two kinds of meats, then called Kalbslyoner or Geflügellyoner.
