I was raised on Braunschweiger. My dad still to this day eats it straight off the loaf, just slice and eat, slice and eat. This Braunschweiger Sandwich is delicious!
Braunschweiger is a wurst, made of liverwurst. While I am not as passionate as my dad is, I do love me some Braunschweiger sandwiches!
The Ultimate Braunschweiger Sandwich
This is so easy. You literally make a sandwich.
Rye Bread (I prefer dark and heavily seeded)
Braunschweiger (sliced 1/4″ thick)
Whole Grain Mustard
A good, dark German beer (optional 😉 )
Slice the Braunschweiger into 1/4″ slices, slather on the mustard, slice the onion thin and add a layer of cheese. BOOM!
Try serving the Braunschweiger both cold and pan-seared. Either way is good, but I do prefer it cold myself. I also highly recommend toasting your bread beforehand (whether you eat it hot or cold), although that is not entirely necessary (and I think my Dad would kill me). Also, some folks prefer mayo instead of the whole grain mustard.
Totally up to you, either way is good.
If you are wary of trying, I double dog dare you. Bread is pretty cheap, Braunschweiger runs right at $2.50 (ish) at most stores and you can always use up red onion and cheese. When you DO try, let us know what you think!
