German Style Breakfast

I love the classic American breakfast. It can be hearty, simple and sweet and there is a huge variety. Either go with differently prepared potatoes, bacon/sausages, eggs and toast or go for a simple oatmeal with brown sugar, maple syrup and raisins, or take a biscuit with gravy, or go sweet with pancakes or french toast.

However, sometimes I just need the German style breakfast that I am used to. As most of it is cold, it does not need long to prepare. Usually a typical German breakfast includes a cold deli meat and cheese plate with fresh roles, hard boiled eggs, fruits, granola and yoghurt, and of course tea or coffee and juice.

Ingredients (for example)

  • slices of Italian dry Salami or Pepper Salami
  • slices of Blackforest Ham, Cajun Turkey or Lemon Pepper Chicken (my favorites)
  • slices of Pepper Jack Cheese (Cheese with Jalapenos)
  • fresh cocktail tomatoes, cucumber or German pickles
  • Pretzel rolls and pumpkin seed rolls or fresh multigrain bread
  • soft or hard boiled eggs
  • Fresh pressed Orange juice
  • Earl Grey tea and coffee

  • Add ons (not on the pictures): Vanilla or Berry Yogurt with Granola (I like Cluster Raisin Bran that has cornflakes, oatmeal clusters and raisins in it)


Boil the eggs. For hard boiled eggs, place in cold water, bring to a boil, remove from heat and let stand covered for 15 minutes, place eggs under cold water, peel an cut in half. Serve with salt. For soft boiled eggs, bring salted water to a boil, place egg in it, cover and let boil for 5 minutes. Quickly remove and run under cold water. Serve in an egg holder, chop of the top and dunk in some toasted bread sticks :)

Plate the deli meat, cheese and veggies on a plate. Salt and pepper the veggies. Cut the fresh fruit and place in a bowl or plate. Serve with fresh rolls or bread, cream cheese and jam.

Place the yogurt in a bowl and top of with a 1/2 cup of granola. 

Juice some oranges and prepare some hot tea and coffee.
