A Note to the Host
“An Oktoberfest party is the perfect time to try a German or Bavarian inspired menu. But there's no need to wait for a Bavarian holiday. German food is hearty and easy to prepare. Enjoy some of our favorite recipes from schnitzel to spätzle, sausage to strudel, and more!”
Uli’s German Apple Red Cabbage
German Red Cabbage is a sweet salad that can be served hot or cold. This recipe was shared by Uli Lengenberg, Master Butcher at Uli's Famous Sausage. Serve Uli's Red Cabbage with his homemade, all natural gourmet sausages!
German Spätzle Noodles
Spätzle is an egg-based dumpling style noodle popular in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Hungary. The homemade version is easy to make, and has a tender mouthfeel superior to commercial or packaged Spätzle.
Paprika Beef Goulash with Mushrooms
Hungarian Goulash is a rich and slightly spicy stew popular in central and southern Europe It's similar to beef stroganoff in its preparation,except that its flavor profile features paprika, tomato, and mushrooms, rather than the brown gravy typical of stroganoff. This goulash is a winter warming meal!
Pork Wiener Schnitzel
Wiener Schnitzel is classic German food. Everyone loves it and most people know what it is, even if they don't speak German. It's traditionally made with veal, but just as yummy and less expensive made with pork. Pork preparation is also often referred to as Jagerschnitzel, although Jagerschnitzel is often served with a mushroom gravy.
The name Strudel means "whirlpool" because flaky pastry is wrapped and rolled around a sweet and spicy fruit compote. Apple is the most traditional Strudel, but it can be made with virtually any sweet or savory filling. Roasted breadcrumbs are spread between the pastry and compote giving Strudel its "crumby" texture.
German Chocolate Cake
Chocolate Glaze & Coconut Pecan Filling just can’t be beat. Make sure you have the right tool to cut two cakes into 4 layers. We use a cake slicer.
