Many websites publish entries on best foods to eat while in Germany and we wanted to do something similar, as we feel that being UK’s premium German hot dog and sausages suppliers we should have our very own entry.

In fact, as wholesale hot dogs suppliers we know how important it is for products to be of premium quality. Germany is well known for its tasty hot dogs and sausages, but there are other wonderful dishes worth mentioning.

Germany is a great place to eat if you’re visiting, so take note of the below suggestions.

1. Bratwurst

We had to place bratwurst as our number 1 choice, of course. Bratwurst is the German sausage par excellence. This sausage is most commonly made with pork meat although it can also be made with beef meat. The first documented evidence of the Bratwurst in Germany dates to 1313 and can be found in the Franconian city of Nuremberg (source). At The Sausage Man we love our wholesale bratwurst and we are proud to offer different sizes to cater for our discerning customers.

2. Bockwurst

Bockwurst is especially tasty because of its flavour. An ideal German sausage if you want to indulge in a traditional recipe. This wonderful sausage is ideal for accompanying eggs, bacon or jacket potatoes. It can also be served with rice and/or salad. If you’re thinking about where to buy wholesale bockwurst just contact The Sausage Man today.

3. Weisswurst

Weisswurst literally means ‘white sausage’. This sausage is a traditional product in Germany and it is made of veal and minced pork. The way to cook it is to boil it and it truly tastes phenomenal. The sausage may also contain cardamom and onion for enhanced flavour, as well as parsley. We are proud to offer our customers a truly superb wholesale weisswurst.

4. Currywurst

Currywurst is the fast food dish in Germany. You can’t go to Germany and not try this delicious sausage covered with tasty curry tomato sauce, also usually topped with curry powder. The sauce is not spicy hot, it tastes more like ketchup with added curry flavour. We also sell wholesale curry tomato sauce at The Sausage Man. Currywurst consists of chopped Bratwurst and it is sometimes served with thin fries. A truly delicious German dish!

5. Schnitzel

Schnitzel is well known around the world. It tastes fantastic with potato salad (see below) and it is an all time favourite dish. The meat is usually thin and coated with flour, eggs and bread crumbs. Some people say this dish originated in Austria while others differ. Either way, Schnitzel can be made by using veal, pork, chicken, veal, beef, etc and it is very similar to escalope, a French dish. By the way, find here the difference between schnitzel and escalope.

6. Potato Salad

Also known as “Kartoffelsalat“, this lovely potato salad can be served hot or cold. It can be made as a simple dish with only a few ingredients but we do assure you it is most definitely a flavoursome dish. Find here, here and here great websites for truly wonderful German potato salad recipes.

7. Spaetzle

For those who don’t know this yet, spaetzle is a noodle. Wikipedia says of spaetzle: “Since March 2012, Swabian Spätzle and Swabian Knöpfle have been awarded the EU quality seal for “Protected Geographical Indications (PGI)” and are protected throughout Europe as a regional specialty.” Basically, in order for the product to be able to display the sign, at least one of the stages within the product’s production must have taken place within the region of origin. Check out our wholesale spaetzle for more information on this product.

8. Sauerkraut

What can be said about Sauerkraut (fermented raw cabbage) that’s not already popular knowledge? Pungent, juicy, tasty, so popular as a hot dog topping! You haven’t tasted the real Germany til you’ve tasted the glorious sauerkraut. You can either love it or hate it, but you definitely have to taste it!

9. Black Forest Ham

Black Forest ham (also Schwarzwälder Schinken in German) is a variety of dry cured smoked ham. It is produced in the Black Forest region of Germany and is very well known for its fabulous pronounced flavour.

It can actually take months to produce this ham and, please, beware of copycats! Different to Parma ham (Italian Prosciutto) and Serrano ham (in Spain) Black Forest ham has a protected designation of origin in the European Union. We’re really proud of our wholesale Black Forest ham which is of premium quality.

10. Apple Strudle

Oh, so difficult to choose one dessert out of so many great ones! We’e gone for Apple strudel, as it is popular throughout the world. Apple strudel (Apfelstrudel) is a typical dessert in Bavaria and Austria; “strudel” is a German word that derives from the Middle High German word for ‘eddy’ or ‘whirpool’ (see source).

We sometimes offer Apple strudel as part of our Christmas products, if you require wholesale apple strudel make sure to visit this website and download the latest brochure.
