German Food Recipes

Germany food and recipes. Many think of sausages, kraut and beer amongst other things. Of course, the Germans eat all those but there are many other German food recipes and traditions to be enjoyed.

German Brotzeit/German Beer Garden Food


Take the Bavarian Brotzeit for example. There is nothing nicer than sitting under a clear blue sky. Whether at home or in a beer garden, cheese(Käse), Obatzda, sausage salad (Wurstsalat), Brezen and a cool beer play a main part in this German tradition.

Take a peek at my German food recipes and you can enjoy this German tradition too. In this section there are recipes for you to prepare for your Brotzeit, which literally translated means bread time. You will also find delicious salad recipes too.

German Traditional Food Recipes

Beef in Vinegar and OilRindfleisch in Essig und Öl

When you have any cooked beef left over (circa 250g) then prepare this easy salad of beef in vinegar and oil dressing.

Slice the cooked beef into thin strips or chunks. Cut an onion into rings and place with the beef in a bowl. Peel an apple and cut into chunks. Pour over 2 dessert spoons vinegar and a little broth if necessary. Then pour over 2 dessert spoons oil and leave to soak for about 10 minutes. Mix well and just before serving sprinkle over chopped chives.

German Obatzter

To make Obatzter put 50g butter in a warm bowl. Add 3 dessert spoons quark and 100g ripe Camembert and then press with a fork until a creamy mass is formed. Add a small finely chopped onion and season with freshly ground pepper. Lastly add 1 dessert spoon of paprika and then mix well. If liked sprinkle with some freshy chopped chives.

Eat on the same day as preparation.

Serve with freshly baked bread or Brezen (Pretzel) and a nice cold beer.

Bread with Chopped ChivesGerman Schnittlauchbrot

Evenly spread butter on a slice of freshly baked bread. Sprinkle over finely chopped chives and salt to taste. Cut the bread with chopped chives into small squares and serve.

Another one of my German traditional recipes is Bavarian sausage salad.
