You don’t need any culinary skills to make this dish; it is super easy and fast. Grenadir, also called Granadir or Granadir Marsch is a very common dish in Central Europe.

 

It is typical military food as it is both cheap and filling, hence the name – Greandier Marsch. I make it when I have leftover pasta or potatoes – it’s an excellent way to use them up. This potato pasta dish is a great side dish that uses a handful of staple ingredients, but you can also serve it as a simple main dish.

 

You probably think that mixing potatoes and pasta makes for a weird combination, but you have to trust me when I tell you that this concoction is anything but weird.

 

The aroma of the onions meeting the hot oil is a pure comfort that connects everyone to their childhood memories no matter what cuisine they grew up eating. You know what I’m talking about. You’re a little and playing in the living room or doing homework when the smell of frying onions tickles your nose and suddenly you’re hungry (even if you were a picky eater like me).

 

The banging of pots and pans coming from the kitchen while mom is making magic always made me feel safe and content. Doesn’t everybody associate food with childhood?

 

Grenadir is one of those dishes that triggers childhood memories of happiness and content. I promise you will like it too. You can totally make it from scratch instead of leftovers.

 

For non-vegetarian, entrée version, add ham cubes or bacon. Serve alongside salad greens like Boston lettuce.

          Yes way! We ate it before I could take a photo, but your photos are way better anyway! We loved it! My husband doesn’t like spicy food so I omitted the green chile. It was a feast for the eye and the mouth! 😀
