What 5 People Around the World Had for Breakfast Today
Many thanks to Derryl, Antonia, Nithi, Jamie, and Giorgia for sharing your stories with us!
2-3 Weisswürste (veal and pork sausage)
Curly leaf parsley for the sausage water
1 Bavarian style soft pretzel
German sweet mustard
Weißbier (German wheat beer)
All you have to do is to heat up the sausages in hot but not boiling water together with the parsley. If you boil them they might burst and then taste kind of watery. Then you peel the sausages out of their skin and group them with the pretzel, mustard and cheese or butter. Usually you dip the sausages in the mustard and eat the pretzel with the cheese or butter. You can also dip the pretzel into the mustard.
Traditionally you eat the sausages by hand and suck them out of their casing, but peeling them before eating is also perfectly acceptable.
2 sheets of matzo
Maple syrup and/or jam (for serving)
Break up the matzos into tiny pieces, but not completely pulverized. Place in a bowl and cover with water. Let sit for about 30 seconds to allow the matzo to soften slightly. Drain off water. Crack in egg and add a pinch each of salt and sugar. Mix well so that the egg completely coats the matzo. Add another egg if your mixture seems too dry. Heat some butter in a pan until it melts. Add the matzo/egg mixture. Pan fry until egg is completely cooked and matzo looks dryer. Serve warm with maple syrup and/or jam on top!
For the base:
-Butter 250g (cold from the fridge)
-All purpose Flour 500g
-Powdered sugar 70g
-Zest of 1 Lemon
-A pinch of salt
For the filling:
-Any jam you enjoy
Start by preparing the dough:
Mix (in the mixer) the flour, butter (cold) until it has a sand-like consistency. Be careful, you do not want it to become too warm. Then add in the lemon zest, powdered sugar and eggs and mix again until you have a homogeneous dough. Transfer it on a work table, form a little ball and wrap it in parchment paper. Put it in the fridge for 1 hour.
After 1 hour, roll 2/3 of the dough in a round shape of 7-8 mm thickness and carefully transfer it in your form. Make tiny holes with a fork on the bottom and then use one full jar of jam to make the delicious filling. With the remaining dough form some stripes or shapes to decorate your crostata!
Then put it in a preheated oven at 170 degrees (celcius) for around 50 minutes but check on it regularly, you do not want it to be too brown.
The next day, make yourself a good cup of coffee, put some music on and enjoy your freshly baked crostata like an Italian would do!
