This copycat Knockwurst Sandwich is my version of a terrific German sausage sandwich I’d had while on vacation in Northern Wisconsin.
German Onion Soup has plenty of caramelized onions, beer, bratwurst and pretzel roll croutons which will soon become a family favorite!
Surprise! I’ll bet you didn’t see that coming.
My recipe today for Hearty German Meatballs with Caraway Mushroom Cream Sauce is a “recipe re-do” from one I shared years ago on my blog (January of 2012 to be exact), which I called simply enough German Meatballs in Cream Sauce. This new version uses heavy cream in place of the evaporated milk I used back in 2012, does away with the beer completely and replaces it with beef stock, and I added a bunch of fresh mushrooms and stone ground mustard to pump up the flavor. Wunderbar!!
These days a beer batter bratwurst takes the blue ribbon of my heart, and I’ll bet they’ll win over your heart too.
Find out my tips and tricks for making this fair favorite (with a twist) at home!
I had chicken breasts in the freezer, apple cider in the fridge, a half a box of gingersnaps left in the pantry, a few sweet potatoes that I needed to use before they went bad, and friends coming for dinner.
The result was this Apple Cider Braised Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Gingersnaps. This dinner FAR surpassed my expectations, and was a massive hit with our guests! Winner! Winner! Chicken dinner!!
If you visit me here in my Kudos Kitchen often, then you know that German foods/Oktoberfest recipes are my very favorites. I’m sure it’s because of my heritage, and I’m also certain it’s because Oktoberfest happens in autumn, which (surprise, surprise) is my very favorite season.
But whatever the reason, heritage or season, this Wunderbar Oktoberfest Recipe Roundup post for Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings will be one that even I will visit often throughout the season.
Before I started baking, I was a little intimidated to tackle this traditional German Bee Sting Cake. Our BFF’s have been to Germany many times over the years, and they’ve spoken so highly of this cake I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to do it justice.
Since I was gifting this cake to them for the many thoughtful acts they’ve done for us in the past, I especially wanted this cake to be amazing!
As a family, we’ve decided we’re going to start eating a lower carb diet. Since that’s the case, you’ll be seeing more and more recipe on this site that are of the low carb/keto variety. That said, since I’ve always loved sharing a wide array of delicious recipes with you here, from appetizers to desserts, I do not plan on entirely refocusing my blog in that way.
However, what you CAN expect is a generous sprinkling of lower carb and keto inspired recipes in between all the other cooking and baking recipes you’ve come to love and expect from Kudos Kitchen. Something for everyone is my motto, along with a pinch or two of everything in moderation. 🙂
This dish for Authentic German Spaetzle Casserole was inspired by a recent trip to Germany my husband, and I was lucky enough to take onboard a Vantage River cruise ship (The River Voyager) down the Rhine River, on one of their culinary excursions.
When I tell you it was a dream trip come true, I am 100% NOT exaggerating!!
I love a good hearty rye bread that has a lot of body and flavor. This rustic onion rye bread with dill ticks all those boxes, and then some. If you’re a novice at making homemade yeast bread, this recipe is a good one to cut your teeth on (no pun intended). LOL
