We had Maultaschen for dinner tonight. Funny that I have never mentioned one of my favorite German foods before, but now's better than never I guess.
Maultaschen, or "muzzle bags," are actually Swabian, but they are now sold all over Germany. They are similar in concept to ravioli, but usually larger and most often filled with ground pork,spinach, and spices. I love Maultaschen! You can serve them many different ways, in a broth, sliced and pan-roasted, or with baked with butter and onions. They are delicious in all different forms!
Tonight's variation was cooked in broth. Yum!
Please excuse the stars in the soup, Jörn used a chicken and stars soup.
Maultaschen are especially yummy fresh from a butcher, like ours, or homemade. We made them once with Jörn's Oma. It was such a special experience, and I wish we had taken pictures as a memory. But at least we know her recipe now, and one day, we'll make yummy Maultaschen on our own!
