Easy German Recipes- Website Recipe Index


I grew up eating German food cooked by my mother and my Oma. As I got older, I learned, through trial and error… and a bit of patience… to recreate these delicious German dishes in my American Kitchen. Now over the years I’ve published quite a few Easy German Recipes to my website (the list is LONG) so it was time to build a proper index.

And here it is!

BTW. In 2021, I released my first cookbook… the Easy German Cookbook.
(While there is a little bit of overlap, only a few recipes from the website made it to the book.)
So if you want MORE recipes, like Rouladen, Brathähnchen, Königsberger Klopse, and MORE, you’ll find the recipes there.

  1. I have enjoyed you cookbook for a couple years now and enjoy trying the familar as well as new new foods. I am third generation so a lot is new to me.
    I would like to make your Sauerkrautsoup recipe. I was not sure how to measure the “8 bread and butter pickles”. Is it eight slices (chips) or 8 whole pickles? Thanks

    1. OOps! That one slipped past the editor! 8 slices/chips
