Shakshuka has quickly become my favourite brunch dishes! I can wholeheartedly say that because Avocado Toast and I are in an ‘all-day-every-day’ kind of relationship!
But enough of Avocado Toast for now. Let’s talk brunch and softly poached eggs in spicy tomato sauce. Sounds incredible, right? Right!
Compared to other countries breakfast in Germany seems like a boring affair. Don’t get me wrong, our cuisine has some gems to offer. Breakfast is – in my opinion – just not one of them.
Staples here are Cereals or Müsli, often with fruit and yoghurt. Bread with cold cuts and cheese or marmalade and honey for the people with a sweet tooth. On weekends soft or hard boiled eggs sometimes join the party. Of course, there are also local specialities but from what I have experienced that’s what most people would eat on a regular basis. When you go out to a restaurant for breakfast there are of course options. But even there you will rarely find something more adventurous than smoked salmon or the occasional offer of smoothies.
