Brotzeit (bread time) Menu

Brotzeit (bread time), also called Abendbrot (evening bread) is a popular German meal or dinner consisting of an array of open-faced sandwiches, with a large variety of breads, an array of cold meat cuts and cheeses, pickled vegetables, salad and fresh-cut vegetables, a variety of condiments and usually beer, wine schorle or mineral water. 

This meal is true to the German saying: "eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper." The key protein elements to this nutritious, easy-to-make meal are a choice of cold meat cuts and cheeses,  complemented with the aromatic flavor of crusty German bread, hearty whole grain breads and pretzels,refined by tart pickles, freshly-cut raw veggies (carrots, peppers, radishes, cucumbers), served with culinary oils and fresh butter as well as a variety of German sweet, medium or hot mustard.

Of course, many German families use this occasion for leftovers and may also serve "Frikadellen" (cold hamburger patties dipped in hot mustard), cheese spaetzle or soups.

Brotzeit (a term often used in Bavaria for lunch) or Abendbrot (a term used all over Germany for a bread-bases evening dinner) are an integral part of German cuisine.
