Berlin Frankfurter Pottage

Anne Wieland’s Soup

This recipe was cooked for use by the lovely Anne Wieland from Berlin who stayed with us at no.7 recently. For her leaving dinner she prepared us this wonderfully simple soup. Delicious, hearty and straight forward it was an instant winner. Here is a photo of her & our other lovely no.7 resident Sarah, she promises to share her recipe for homemade brown sauce soon - oh yeah!!

4 potatoes cubed – cubes 2cms

5 carrots sliced - thinly

Stock (the best you have – good stock cubes will do)

A packet of frankfurters


Salt and freshly milled black pepper

Cover potatoes and carrots with stock, bring to the boil and simmer till tender. Meanwhile slice the frankfurters into little slices or chunkier if you fancy and fry in a little oil until the start to brown.

When the potatoes and carrots are done mash them gently with a masher – to get a nice consistency of veg and broth. Add in your sausage and mix and serve, sprinkle with a little chopped parsley, serve with beer, cheese, sourdough bread and a German friend.
