Brunede Kartoffler (Caramelised Potatoes)

Country: Denmark
Course: Side
Makes: 4 to 6 servings


  • 20 oz small potatoes
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup white sugar


  1. Boil the potatoes until they are just done. You want them to be firm, not mushy. Set them aside and let them cool a little. When they are cool enough to handle, pull the peels off with your fingers (they should come off pretty easily).
  2. Put the sugar and butter in a frying pan and heat slowly, stirring continuously until it melts and starts to turn golden. Add the potatoes and keep stirring until the caramel sticks to them (five to 10 minutes).
