German Easter Breakfast- The BEST German Breakfast of the Year!

0
6

German weekend breakfasts have a reputation for being delightful drawn out meals with loads of special things on the table… Aufschnitt, Brötchen, soft boiled eggs and fruit. But German EASTER Breakfast takes it up a notch. I’m not much of a morning person, but I was always happy to hop out of bed to enjoy this special meal with my family. Maybe it’s because Easter is one of the few holidays I was able to enjoy IN Germany…. Still,  even today, we make Easter Breakfast a special lingering meal that everyone truly enjoys.

German Easter Breakfast

At home, my mother and I would always set the Easter Table the night before. A little extra care would go in to making sure that the white tablecloth was smooth, and that the perfect springtime table topper fit over it. The “good dishes” that she got for her wedding would come out of the cabinet, and so would the silverware, egg cups, and nice napkins. A centerpiece of flowers would go in the middle of it all, along with some bunny ornaments to make the table look extra festive.

The next morning, (after the egg hunt) we would find a special chocolate bunny or chocolate egg on our plate!

The table would be finished off with Brötchen (if we could get them!) or other breads. A sweet Easter Wreath was there to satisfy my mother’s craving for sweet yeast dough! Of course, everyone got an Ei (a soft boiled egg) in a special egg cup with their own spoon and salt shaker. Earlier in the week, a special trip to the German Store would have happened, so now there was a plate with fresh Westfalisches Schinken, Gelbwurst, Blutwurst, Jagdwurst und Salami! And the Cheese… my mother could live from cheese, so we always had a lot. Jam, honey and Nutella were all on the table too… and of course… Gute Butter (the good butter)!

Looking for something a little heartier? Why not do what my cousin does … make a Schinken Käse Eier Salat! A Fruit Salad is a delicious fresh addition, as is some yogurt. And of course, don’t forget the O-saft (orange juice)!

To finish off the table, scatter a few little chocolate eggs around for people to nibble as they sip their coffee. (Just be careful NOT TO SET HOT PLATES on them).

Hefezopf Osterkranz (Yeast Braid/ Easter Wreath)

This traditional braided sweetbread can be made with or without raisins. Instead of leaving it as a loaf, for Easter, I brought the ends together to make a wreath.

  1. Lovely post! We had Paska and the cheese spread. Colored hard boiled eggs and some ham and coldcuts for Dad. My Mom was German from Russia.

  2. Lovely e-mail for Easter. Brings back memories. I now live in a retirement home and my efforts are minimal.

  3. We still do many of the same foods at Easter! I am hungry thinking about it. We use colored hardboiled eggs to play Eier Kip…everyone picks an egg and tries to break the pointed end of their opponents egg, (held in their hand) then they turn them over, and the other player tries to break the other end of the egg. If one person’s egg survives the cracking, they are the winner…if they each have one untracked end, they do it again…..the winner goes on to another opponent….The loser gets to eat! We slice the eggs, and serve on Schwartzbrot with Mayo and Duesseldorf mustard. So fun.

  4. OMG, Karen. My mouth is watering. I can’t eat any of this Deliches foods. I was diagnosed with blood sugar. I’m one step away of getting diabetes. Also have to cut down on Carbs. I’m a potato eater. A meal without potatoes is no meal for me. Sweets are a total no, no. I seldom eat sweets, except Christmas time. Hate going to the doctor. He always finds something new. My grandson won’t hunt Easter eggs anymore. He will be 25 in December. I’m Catholic and we supposed to celebrate the risen from the death of our Lord Jesus. The older I get, the more I think about joining our Lord in heaven. We as parents and grandparents need to teach our children what we really celebrate on Easter. It’s all over the news about we are living in the end times. I want to be prepared living the rest of my time here on earth. The second coming of Christ has started. The Anti-Christ is on his way. Horrible things will happen. We will still be alive to experience it. So, we will have a somber Easter. Of course, my children don’t believe it. I desperately need to convince them what is coming. My grandson believes me, but that still don’t stop him from doing what he considers fun. I wish you and your family a wonderful Easter.
