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…

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…

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!…

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…

Black Forest Pumpernickel Bread (for bread machine or conventional yeast dough method)

Black Forest Pumpernickel Bread (for bread machine or conventional yeast dough method) by Salad Foodie

A soul-satisfying dark bread with distinctive rye flavor. Supermarket rye breads can be a disappointment - at times dry, ho-hum flavor & nutrition, pricey and even difficult to locate. This bread won’t disappoint! Pair slices of it with corned beef or…

This is a very traditional bread dumpling that is served in restaurants in Austria and Bavaria. This is a perfect dumpling to serve with a stew that has rich sauce.

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…

Spaetzle

Spaetzle by John Spottiswood

This is a simple and delicious recipe for Spaetzle. My friend Helmut normally does not add oil to his Spaetzle, but we did last night because it said to on the recipe on our Spaetzle maker. I think it helped make the dough slightly easier to work with and less sticky. Feel free to do without if you prefer.

German Pretzels (Bretzen)

German Pretzels (Bretzen) by Foodiewife

"Bretzen" are a traditional soft pretzel that is often sliced in half and buttered, as a breakfast treat. These bring back my memories of my childhood, living in Bavaria. If you have a stand mixer, with a dough hook, you can mix the batter in 10 minutes! One hour later, you roll the dough into a rope, shape them, dip them in boiling…

Sauerbraten Abkürzung

Sauerbraten Abkürzung by Salad Foodie

You already know what sauerbraten is, yes? Well to that I add Abkürzung: German for "short cut" (let's hope my Googled translation is correct.) After checking out several versions of sauerbraten, I blended a few ideas and ingredients from several and came up with my own time-saving formula! The roast cooks in a spicy sweet-sour…

Runza (Meat & Cabbage Pies)

Runza (Meat & Cabbage Pies) by Bob Vincent

This is a modifed old German recipe. These are great served with a hearty soup. They make a substantial appetizer when cut into pieces. Yes, they are high in fat. Don't substitute the vegetable shortening as it is what really makes for soft and delicate dough. The sugar provides a sweetness to the dough. For a bit of color add…
