Paprikás krumpli was our national dish in hard times. You need very little to make good paprikás krumpli. I grew up with the meatless version and had it way too often. These days I make it not because I have to, but because I love the dish.

6 red potatoes
3 Tbsp oil
1/2 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tomato, sliced
1/2 green pepper, sliced
1-2 Tbsp Hungarian Paprika
salt and pepper
kolbassa sausage, sliced

• Peel the potatoes, wash, and cut into quarters.
• In a medium sized pot sauté the diced onions until soft.
• Add the sausage slices and slow fry for two minutes.
• Add the potatoes and stir in the paprika.
• Salt and pepper to taste.
• Pour on water to barely cover the potatoes.
• Add the tomato and green pepper.
• Bring to slow simmer and cover.
• Cook until potatoes are tender.
• Remove from heat and let rest for a couple of minutes before serving.

It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets. Feel free to cut and paste my recipes for your own use. Publication is permitted as long as it is in your own words and with your own photographs. However, I would ask you for an acknowledgement and link-back to my blog. Happy cooking!
