Did you ever discuss nationality in school? I remember it vividly. We all went around the classroom and revealed what was in our blood lines. There were lots of Irish, lots of German, some Native American too. I loved the fact that I was only one nationality - 100% Greek.
And now I’ve noticed my own kids love talking about their what’s in their genes. They are half German and half Greek. Every once in a while Irish sneaks in there too, when they remember it exists.
I admit, I tend to only focus on one nationality when it comes to food, the Greek side. However, once a year I ignore the Mediterranean and turn to the Danube. Once a year I totally crave German food!
I want big soft, salt covered pretzels with melted cheese, cream puffs the size of my head, and brats with spicy mustard covered in mound of sauerkraut (good German beer is a must too).
We have a big local Oktoberfest festival in September. But in my mind, September is too early. I want to celebrate Oktoberfest in October!
October is when I load up on all my favorite German food and beer in the comforts of my own home. No diets allowed, just stretchy pants!
I know sauerkraut isn’t the top condiment around, but I’m telling you when you pile the tangy sauerkraut atop a piping hot, juicy brat, well then you have yourself a new favorite “burger”.
Yep, a brat burger. I swapped out the typical hot dog bun for a hamburger bun, then I cut the brat in half (clever huh?). The brat is topped it with a spicy sauerkraut-giardinara mix.
And let’s face it, it wouldn’t be right if you didn’t add spicy mustard to this brat burger, would it? The creamy, melted Munster cheese just makes this sandwich a German winner.
I got the German meal down, now, all I have to do now is work on perfecting the giant cream puff!
Don't forget the sides! This is a sandwich well worthy of David's fantastic grilled sweet potatoes.
