Breakfast Of Champions # 16 ” Strammer Max “


.
.

Back  in my youth, in Germany and Austria you were able to order this breakfast dish in any Hotel and in many  “Gaststaetten” , mostly for breakfast but also as a snack during any time of the day or evening. Of course at that time there was freshly ground pepper instead of the sriracha sauce, but other than that, strammer max has not changed in a hundred years. Obviously, it is as simple and good today as it was then  🙂
Toast a good bread of your choice until golden, spread with roasted garlic paste, top with sauted ham and fried egg (add sliced cheese between ham and egg if you prefer), drizzle some sriracha and sprinkle with fresh herbs. Accompany with a small salad and ketchup and scotch bonnet sauce.

  1. Hans, you’re not promoting ‘healthy food’ here-but I adore the yummi strammer Hans-specially after a long night out with a lot of drinking,) Almost as good as the Austrian ‘Käsekrainer’.

  2. Hans, great post . I am actually making it tonight with Bratkartoffel. Back home we used to make it with Black Forest Ham and Rye bread. But your version is much easier to accomplish here !

  3. Hi Chefe:
    Hierzu etwas Geschichtliches:
    In Varianten, die teils abweichende Namen wie Stramme Lotte, Stramme Luise oder Strammer Otto haben, wird der rohe Schinken durch gekochten ersetzt oder durch Leberkäse, Plockwurst, Salami oder ähnliches. Der Begriff Strammer Max wurde um 1920 im Sächsischen mit der Bedeutung „erigierter Pimmel“ gebildet und anschließend auf das Gericht übertragen, wohl weil es ein besonders „kräftigendes“ belegtes Brot ist.

  4. I recall a breakfast at a tiny Bavarian cafe in an ‘industrial’ area of the San Gabriel valley near Los Angeles. The Strammer Max was their main menu item. (It always amused me to see them microwaving scrambled eggs in plastic cups). The clientele was mostly interstate truckers, which is always a good sign to see when travelling, those guys know where the good eats are at.
