This is a hearty dish indeed, and will last you through those long winter days and nights. It’s either served as a main dish, with pickled vegetables or even as an accompaniment (e.g. it’s great with a steak). Rakott Krumpli literally translates as “pleated spuds” - krumpli is a colloquial term for potatoes in Hungarian. I used to eat this all the time in winter growing up. It was probably the first dish I learned to cook. I remember both my parents and my grandmother cooking a version of this - all with slightly different recipes. So many choices - which sausage to use? How starchy are your potatoes? Breadcrumbs or no breadcrumbs? Bacon or no bacon? And most importantly – how much sour cream can you handle? This is the recipe that I now use to make for my family.
