We spent last weekend in Helen, Georgia. I'm finding it difficult to accurately put into words, the uniqueness of this little town. It's just one of the coolest, cheesiest, quirkiest places in the entire state. To quote the city's website, Helen is "a bustling alpine village set against a scenic backdrop of mountains, forests and river banks, you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to the cobblestone streets of Germany’s famed Bamberg or Lindau as colorful shops dot the landscape and the heavenly aroma of authentic German fare takes to the breeze." 🇩🇪
I feel like the best way to get a feel for this quirky little village is through pictures.
We had the best time in Helen. We did a lot of the fun Helen experiences but we also relaxed and we ate all the delicious German food.
This is my kind of German food - pretzel bites with beer cheese and German pastries. 😅🥨. Pork isn't my cup of tea so I passed on the snitzel dishes. I'll gladly take all the German potatoes that they have to offer though. 🥔 I love fried potatoes, roasted potatoes, baked potatoes, and my most favorite - chipped potatoes. 😂
Roasted potatoes are one of the most versatile side dishes of all time. They're the perfect compliment to chicken. They're delicious with steaks and burgers and all things beef. They're great alongside pork tenderloins, chops, shoulders and roasts. And I'd be remiss if I didn't give a nod to the classic fish and chips meal. Safe to say - roasted potatoes go with just about any meal that I can think of.
The next time that you've got the grill fired up for a cookout - throw some potatoes on alongside your main course. You will not be disappointed. These potatoes start their cooking process in the microwave so it takes just a few minutes to crisp them up on the grill. I think you're going to like these.
