Servings 4 people

Ingredients

  • 4 large waxy potatoes
  • 4 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lb sauerkraut
  • 7 oz sour cream
  • 2 tsp caraway seeds
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 slices pumpernickel brea
  • 2 Tbsp hazelnuts
  • 5 tsp butter
  • 1/2 bunch parsley
  • 4 Tbsp grated gouda
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 ° F (200 ° C).
  • Wash the potatoes thoroughly and prick several times with a fork. Rub with sunflower oil and salt. Wrap individually in aluminum foil. Place on the oven shelf and cook in the oven for 75 minutes.
  • Mix the sauerkraut with sour cream, caraway seeds and honey. Season with salt and pepper and chill.
  • Chop the hazelnuts and finely crumble the pumpernickel. Roast them together in a pan without fat. Season with salt and melt 1 teaspoon of butter into the crumbs. Chop the parsley and mix with the breadcrumbs.
  • Take the potatoes out of the oven and cut lengthways, so that they fold at the bottom and the halves d not totally separate. Scrape a little of the potato flesh from each potato half, and loosen up the rest. Melt 1 teaspoon of butter on each side and season with salt.
  • Put 1 tablespoon of Gouda cheese into each of the loosened potatoes and mix. Fill each with 2 tablespoons of sauerkraut and top with the pumpernickel crumble.
