Holiday foods from I am hungry

Glühwein is a spiced hot mulled wine, commonly prepared in fall and winter in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
The alcoholic beverage is a must-have german holiday drink at the Christmas markets and après ski parties in the mountains.
It’s guaranteed to warm you up from within!

During the "Weihnachtsmarkets" we have these little stands where you can drink the Glühwein or some other hot drinks and eat some potato pancakes.


What’s a holiday feast without spuds? Potato dumplings ("Kartoffelknödel" or "Kartoffelklösse") are another go-to recipe at Christmas-time in Germany. "Kartoffelknödel" is most often made to complement a roast with gravy alongside a hearty helping of "Rotkohl." The side dish begins as a dough made from potatoes, flour and bread. It’s seasoned with nutmeg, rolled into a ball, and boiled or steamed in saltwater. Day-after-Christmas leftovers are said to be just as delicious when sliced, pan-fried and slathered with butter. Yum!
There are so many more...Holidays are made for eating so forget about diets.
