” Sardine Sandwiches on Knäckebröd “

. . Last night’s midnight snack. Beer and sardines. What’s not to like ?      🙂 . .  

Red Wine-Braised Veal Shank Slice, With Tagliatelle & Yucatan Cebolla En Escabeche On A Crispy Noodle Pillow

: : : While traditional Osso Bucco is one of my favorite meat dishes, this version of braised sliced veal shanks is, in my humble opinion, far superior. First, the crispy noodle pillow adds great texture to the soft texture of the meat. Second, the marinated onions add great umami to the normally quite one-dimensional […]

Breakfast Of Champions # 72 – Fried Eggs And Bacon With Currywurst Sauce

: : : Now that I am back living in Germany again, there is always a jar with currywurst sauce in my fridge. I use this wonder sauce not only for traditional currywurst, but also on sandwiches instead of mustard and on other dishes, veggies, BBQ, eggs, etc. I admit that this looks a bit […]

Flatbread With Pickled Red Beets, Guacamole And Egg

: : : All the ingredients for this delicious, beautiful sandwich were leftovers I had in the fridge from the previous two days, so the composition was a result of what my fridge dictated, not what I intelligently and artfully created. 🙂 However,  looking at the result and eating it, I have to admit that […]

Breaded Chicken Sandwich With Guacamole, Sweet Chili Relish & Fried Egg, accompanied by Hummus and Small Salad

> > > Usually, I have a variation of breaded or grilled chicken sandwich at least once a week, always accompanied by some easily prepared salad. As for the chili relish and hummus, I usually make them fresh at home, but I also sometimes use store-bought items. Nowadays, many grocery stores have such great quality […]

Toasted Focaccia Sandwich With Veal & Pickled Onions

. . When I have leftovers (meat, seafood, pasta, rice, veggies) in the fridge, rather than just reheat it the next day and have the same dish again, I prefer to create a new, different dish with it. Therefore, the  braised veal breast  from the other day became today’s spectacular, highly satisfying “Toasted Focaccia Sandwich With […]

Sauerkraut Soup

> > > > If you’ve ever lived in Germany or even just visited for a short time, you know that sauerkraut is everywhere, especially as you go further South. Sauerkraut is surprisingly versatile. At some time not too long ago, before fridges and freezers were found in every household, cabbage was one of the […]

Roast Pork Butt Sandwich (Gebratene Spanferkelkeule Mit Brot)

> > > This  sandwich is as German/Austrian as can be. Roasted, juicy, tasty pork, rustic bread, good mustard and the pan jus from the roast. End of story 🙂 Now, if this would be a typical, old-fashioned “American Style Sandwich”, it would probably be as follows: Tasteless, soft, soggy wonder bread or a tasteless, […]
