German Appetizers

German Appetizers are also called snacks, finger food, or starters. It all means little pieces of food served before the main course or a bowl of soup.

The authentic German appetizers are easy to prepare.  Use as an appetizers cheese, spreads, fruit, vegetables and Dips for the creation of a buffet. Have for a sit- down dinner a light Soup as an appetizer. Oma shows you step-by-step how to prepare them. Pictures within the recipes make it easy to understand. Add some crackers, chips or Homemade Soft Pretzel to the snacks and soups, and your appetizers are complete. Wherever you receive your visitors, outdoor or indoor, the starters are a great way of welcoming your guests.
