Blechkartoffeln mit Kräuterquark (German Baked Potatoes & Herbed Quark Cheese)

One more delicious german dish from me, i have crossed this easy baked potatoes with caraway seeds and herbed quark cheese here...This baked potatoes hardly needs 10 minutes to prepare and cook time goes for 30-40minutes in oven..These delicious baked potatoes are usually served as an entrée for a vegetarian menu by the german peoples and the herbed quark suits incredibly prefect as dipping sauce for this baked potatoes..Coming to this herbed quark cream they are often served as spread for breads or as dipping sauce with baked or boiled potatoes even sometimes with hard boiled eggs..This quark are usually prepared with different herbs, my herbed quark cheese was prepared with dry basil leaves and dry parsley leaves, u can very well use fresh basil, parsley, dill leaves according ur taste...This herbed quark cheese also doesnt go for a list of ingredients, its such a easy and a delicious spread for many dishes..Obviously this delicious baked potatoes & herbed quark cheese goes to AWED-German guest hosted by Lakshmi of Kitchen chronicles,event started by DK..
