Chicken Cordon Bleu - Schnitzel Style!

Chicken Cordon Bleu - Schnitzel Style! by Salad Foodie

I fell in love with veal cordon bleu prepared schnitzel style in restaurants while living in Germany in the late 60's. But stateside, veal was hard to come by when I first began to replicate the recipe, so I subbed chicken breast. I have come fairly close to the 'authentic' versions my memories provide of this delicious main dish. I…

Cocktail Rye Bread (with Bread Machine Dough-Making Option)

Cocktail Rye Bread (with Bread Machine Dough-Making Option) by Salad Foodie

For the freshest taste and earthy rye flavor, make your own cocktail rye bread to pair with appetizers at your next party. Redstaryeast.com gave me the inspiration, but I took liberties with their cocktail rye bread recipe by using my bread machine dough-making feature to save kneading energy and time. Baked in mini loaf pans, the…

Bavarian Apple Torte

Bavarian Apple Torte by Salad Foodie

There are gazillions of recipes on the Internet for Bavarian apple cheese cake or torte, but most are sweeter than typical German pastries. I prefer this recipe posted several years ago by a lady from Germany as it makes me think I'm eating authentic German torte. It is certainly sweet, but not overly so, and not rich and heavy with…

German Rye Flaxseed Bread

German Rye Flaxseed Bread by Tina W.

This bread tastes like it came from a German bakery! Delicious topped with meats and cheeses as well as sweets like jam, honey, or Nutella! (The cost per recipe is way off. I figure it costs just over $1.00.)

Apfelkuchen (German Apple Cake) with Almond Apple Cake Variation

Apfelkuchen (German Apple Cake) with Almond Apple Cake Variation by Salad Foodie

This recipe takes me back over 40 years when I lived in Germany. My landlady Mathilda would treat me to this pastry and one day I asked her for the recipe. She agreed to show me how to make it, if I taught her how to make American lemon meringue pie!…

German Meatballs and Sauerkraut

German Meatballs and Sauerkraut by Salad Foodie

I have never thought to serve meatballs on sauerkraut until I tasted this. Wow, forget about meatballs and spaghetti ~ this is delish! Perfect for anytime, and especially for Octoberfest. To serve several guests, I made the meatballs, cooked them and refrigerated a day ahead. About an hour before serving time, I spooned the…

Easy Cinnamon Apple Strudel by Nancy Miyasaki

This is super simple and truly delicious. I made it for John's birthday dinner, since he loves cinnamon apple desserts with vanilla ice cream. It's light and flavorful without being too rich. We finished it all in one night between the six of us. Mmm!

Cinnamon Walnut Rugelach

Cinnamon Walnut Rugelach by Robyn Savoie

These charming crescent shaped cookies are flaky, tender, bite-sized Jewish treat sure to please. They house the just-right amount of nuts, cinnamon and sugar. Making this cookie can be a bit tedious and messy but well worth the effort. Rugalach come in many flavors, but this is my personal favorite.

German Spaetzle

German Spaetzle by Foodiewife

Spaetzle (SPETZ-LAY) is a traditional, and very popular German noodle. It's excellent to use in place of egg noodles. In Bavaria, where my family comes from, we serve this with a generous healping of Austrian Goulash or as a side dish with Schnitzel (breaded cutlets). Please click on my URL link to see how I make this on my blog, "A…

German Potato Salad Heirloom Recipe

German Potato Salad Heirloom Recipe by Foodiewife

My Mutti was born and raised in Bavaria, and I grew up with this wonderful potato salad. She owned a Bavarian Delicatessen in my hometown of Monterey, CA for years. Every morning, she'd make a fresh batch of her famous potato salad, and it would sell out by noon. Unlike a Northern German version of Hot Potato salad, with lots of…

Bierocks (beerocks, bierochs...whatever, they’re great!) by Salad Foodie

A yeast dough stuffed with beef and cabbage then baked, this German “hamburger” has been a favorite treat whenever the mood to cook something different for others moves me. Make your own dough, use a box roll mix, or simpler yet, start with frozen dinner roll dough as I always do. Make them circular or fold up and pinch edges in to…
