ISO German recipes

I'm doing a German menu for DH for date night tomorrow evening. Thinking of doing a German sausage casserole, potato salad and maybe German style green beans. Anyone got any great German ideas/recipes for me ?

You can make spaetzle with some butter and chives. They are delicious!

How about a selection of sausages with some good mustards on the side, warm German potato salad, & green beans with spaetzle, & sauerkraut or cooked red cabbage.?

Or how about Chicken (or veal or pork) Schnitzel? Pounded bread chicken cutlets topped with anchovies, capers, lemon juice, & fried eggs - with the same accompaniments.

I have made this recipe several times. It's also great for parties because it can be made an hour or so ahead and eaten at room temp.

Zwiebelkuchen (Onion Pie)

4-5 slices bacon
2 cups yellow onions, chopped
2 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 T. all purpose flour
Salt and pepper to taste
1 9” pie shell

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Cook the bacon, but the bacon is not too crisp.
Drain off most of the fat.
Add the onions and sauté until softened.
Set aside and cool.
Beat the eggs.
Add the sour cream.
Add the flour, salt and pepper.
Prick the bottom of the pie shell several times with a fork.
Spread the onions and bacon in the bottom of the pie shell.
Spread the sour cream mixture over the top.
Bake 15 minutes.
Reduce heat to 350°F and bake another 15 minutes or until pie is browned.

Schnitzel is what I was thinking too. Don't forget good old dark German beer.

I think we had a thread here about German foods.

P.S. Yeap, I jsut went and searched, we have a whole bunch of threads about German foods.

Thanks all - realized I'm not going to have as much time as I thought so I cheated and went to the German deli - bought rye bread and smoked teewurst pate to start with, spatzle - which even if I had the time I don't think I would ever attempt to make - looks way to complicated, potato kartoffel salat and the ingredients for the main dish - German sausages with sauerkraut - you basically fry onion and add Bratwurst,Frankfurters and apple pieces, sauteeing until golden. You then add the sauerkraut,smoked pork, smoked ham, brown sugar, bay leaves, white wine, juniper berries,caraway seeds,salt and pepper and then bake for 40-50 minutes. Going to serve that with the spaetzle and potato salad. I copied and pasted the onion pie though - sounds delicious !

You just made me miss Germany even more!

Good choices though!
