What do you eat when running errands or traveling and needing a snack? Are you more the sweet tooth or the sandwich girl?
I love me a muffin but I equally enjoy an egg sandwich or as we call them here “Eierbrötchen”. I never really thought much about it… But I guess it is kind of unique. Every bakery store in Germany offers those kind of sandwiches. Also every snack store in train stations and such. It is the most common one next to cheese, salami and ham.
They come in all sizes and shapes. Dark bread, wheat bread, baguette style or simple size. Some are made with way too much butter and others with remoulade. And they usually all have a leaf of lettuce too.
Also they are mostly the cheapest snack in the house.
It is funny. As much as I like having this snack when being out and about I would never really attempt to do that at home. Why is that? Do you have a snack that falls in this category?
I remember we used to have “Eierschnittchen” at every birthday party when we were kids. And usually they were the first to be gone. But I guess scarceness makes them more special. Or maybe I am just too lazy to boil eggs and slice them up… I think I only ever eat this at home if I have some easter eggs left over. But that’s about it.
Now happy munching,
