Q​uintessential German: Maultaschen are great

T​traditional German Foods explained.

E​ver since my Childhood, I have really like Maultaschen. Originally, they come from Schwaben in Southern Germany. Today, that is in Bavaria and Baden-Würthemberg. They really are delicious.

M​aultaschen are quite easy, but also somewhat complicated. So I never made them myself, nor did anyone I know. Luckily, the bought ones are of high Quality.

U​sually, Maultaschen consist of a Pasta Pocket filled with Bread Crumbs, Spinach, Minced Meat and Speck (something like Bacon), but there are many local Varieties.

W​e normally have three Methods that are acceptable when it comes to eating Maultaschen, but they are always cooked in either veggie or beef Stock.

T​hose Methods are: In Stock or in a thick Sauce colloquial known as 'Schlonze', with utter and Onions or cut into Strips and roasted. Lately, the latter way is my favourite. It is also the tastiest in my Opinion.

O​ff Course there are still copious Amounts of Onions involved.

W​ith Pesto.

W​ith Pesto.

O​n any normal Day, I would probably eat my Maultaschen with Remoulade to add some extra Flavour, even though the Purists would probably shun me for that blasphemy.

T​oday, I did something different though. Since I still have a lot of my homemade Bärlauch Pest left over from last Saturday, I put some of it to good use with my Maultaschen. It was super Delicious. And maybe even a little more acceptable to those Purists.

N​ow I am down to two Jars of Pesto from the three that were mine to take.

(​You can also get Vegan/ Vegetarian Maultaschen, but In have never tried those.)

  • I want some! Will this recipe work (cookingtheglobe.com/maultaschen-recipe/ )? I figure that I can use fake veggie burger instead of real meat. It will be a good excuse for pulling out the pasta attachment for my mixer. :)

    • I’ve never made them myself, but usually the Ingredients are spread on the Pasta. That is then rolled into a flat Package and cut into Maultaschen. The rest looks good though.

  • My wife and I had it in restaurant in Überlingen. Great memories of food and town, but not the drive. I was booked for speeding. It was only €15, but my wife keeps reminding me that I always manage to "find" speed camera in any country!
