For your Best Sandwich Recipes ...

For the best sandwiches, there's nothing quite like homemade fresh bread

However, if you don't want to bake, then try to use some German bread. A hearty rye bread or some pumpernickel is delicious. Whole grain breads are also common in Germany. Perhaps your baker has some Artisan Breads available or make your own

Use any one or a combination of the savory or flavored butters as the spread. Then add your favourite meat, cheese, or one of the combinations listed above. Use the photo, above, for examples of how to decorate.

Often served with a dill pickle on the side, why not make a large plate of different types of these open-faced sandwiches. Decorate with some raw vegetables and serve with a cup of tea. Very German.

If you want something different, you can make your own German sourdough bread first. Try my No Knead Whole Grain Sourdough Bread. It's what I raised my family on. Healthy and easy.

Have Oma by your side ... helping you


Origins of the Sandwich ...

When John Montagu (1718 - 17920), Lord of Sandwich, created the first sandwich, he did so in order to have a quick bite to eat between card games. At least that's the traditional story of how the sandwich started. True or not, a sandwich really is an easy way to have a meal.

With so many possibilities, the variations are endless. Every type of bread or roll can be used. Every type of filling can be created. Mix and match. Endless!

The traditional sandwich, an English invention, is usually eaten without knife and fork. But for the Germans, this is a bit different. Mostly eaten open-faced with a knife and fork, it's a popular evening meal that is so traditional.

In Germany, sandwiches, "belegte Brote" or "covered breads", are also often served for afternoon tea as an addition to the cake platters. Usually rolls are used for this. They provide sugarless alternatives for guests and help limit the amount of sweets eaten.
