Where to Buy German Sandwich Boards for Abendbrot or Brotzeit
It is typical in parts of Germany to have Abendbrot on wooden boards or Resopal (Formica), that acted as plate and cutting board. In Bavaria, they have Brotzeit, also eaten on a board. My whole family in Germany at this way… and here in the US, my mom would often do a simple Abendbrot dinner on Sunday evenings. But, over time the Brettchen (little boards) wear out, and need replacing. I did a little searching, and learned where to buy German Sandwich boards for Abendbrot here in the US.
These Sandwich boards are easy to care for, and are easy to wash. Added bonus, they are less fragile than a plate. Perfect for cutting and eating a sandwich, some fresh sliced tomatoes and pickles. YUM!
I’m delighted to see that you can find some beautiful hand made boards. Handmade may cost a bit more, but you get something beautiful that will last a lifetime.
I still haven’t found the ones my mom had…. they had grooves set into them for a knife and fork, because, yes, you eat a sandwich with a knife and fork. (Every now and then when I mention something we had while I was growing up I hear… oh, “it wore out”, or , “it broke”, or the worst…” I gave that to Goodwill!”)
Let’s rekindle the Abendbrot and Brotzeit board traditions… at least on the weekends… and serve delicious bread, flavorful Aufschnitt (German Cold Cuts), tomatoes, radishes and REAL BUTTER on these charming Brettchen (Little Sandwich Boards).
