Best German Inspired Recipes - Easy Oktoberfest Recipes

We don’t need much persuasion to grab an ice cold mug of beer and celebrate Oktoberfest. And with all these German-inspired recipes, like sausage and sauerkraut, pretzels, chicken schnitzel, and spätzle, we could celebrate all year round. Try any (or all!) of these recipes, and your taste buds will say, “Jawohl!”

It just wouldn’t be an Oktoberfest party without the perfect beers to pair with your meal. But how to choose? Luckily, we’ve rounded up the best beers so you can cook. No surprise, beer is one of our top secret weapons for making all of our German favorites, as in our grilled beer candies, pretzel ring beer cheese, beer-braised cabbage and skillet beer cheese.

German food isn’t just about beer cheese and pretzels, we promise. Lighten things up a bit by making our sweet and sour red cabbage, cucumber salad and roasted herb potatoes. Germany is also known for their incredible sweets that make great year-round treats such as German apple pie, spritz cookies, apple strudel, and pfeffernüsse. If you’ve never tried sweet noodle kugel, make the sweet casserole ASAP. It will (literally) brighten up any occasion.

Looking for more fall-inspired recipes? Toast the season with our favorite fall cocktails before trying all our favorite pumpkin recipes, apple recipes, best fall dinners, and fall desserts (for balance). And if you have a serious beer lover in your life, treat them to one of our favorite beer gifts or beer subscriptions.
