Spaetzle - there are many ways to serve this delicious dish, but my favorite is with cheese and ham. I've usually used gouda, this time we used Havarti cheese. I drained the spaetzle, melted 2 slices of cheese in with it, added some shredded ham slices and then gobbled it up! yum yum yum. Another note: this recipe claims this makes 6 servings but I can't even imagine it serving that many. I would say it made more like 3 good size side servings.
Bavarian cinnamon roasted almonds - I just used vanilla extract and regular sugar and salt. They were PERFECT!!
Brotchen - sooo good!! We used these as kind of buns to eat with the bratwurst - it was delicious!
Potato salad (no photo sorry) - this isn't the typical German kartoffelsalat but a "germanized" version I adapted from the Better Homes and Gardens recipe. Basically just has more vinegar, lots of dill, plus a chopped dill pickle for good measure.;)
Bratwurst (not a recipe but just an example of what you might find in the store)
Cucumber salad - I didn't actually like this recipe very much. I've had a very difficult time finding one that truly replicates what I loved so much in Germany (besides the Krauter herb/spice pack I've ordered from GermanDeli.com). But you're welcome to give it a try and see how you like it. ;)
And then I just bought a big jug of fresh apple cider and a liter bottle of seltzer water (not club soda - get the kind without sodium) and mixed them together almost half and half to make it sparkling.
