In honor of the release of the new Early Lingo German Edition, award-winning culinary artist and chef, Kai Loebach, created some mouth watering snacks and recipes for us. Kai recently opened Currywurst in Los Angeles where you will find authentic traditional German sausages and french fries – it’s out of this world!

These little sandwiches make a great snack – and a twist on the everyday chicken tender!

SCHNITZEL-PRETZEL BROT

  • Pretzel Brot (you can find at Trader Joe’s, grocery store or specialty bakery)
  • 1 package of chicken tenders, frozen
  • Pam olive oil spray
  • ketchup and mustard

Cook chicken tenders according to package directions. Place a grill pan on a high heat burner. Slice the pretzel brot and spray both sides with Pam olive oil. Grill until scored, then remove from pan.

Place a chicken nugget between 2 bread slices and serve with ketchup and mustard.

This tasty arrangement is a fun way to get kids to try new foods and to eat their veggies!

Assorted Sausage and Vegetable Lollipops

  • 1 large zucchini
  • 1 package cherry tomatoes
  • assorted German sausages
  • olive oil
  • lollipop sticks (found at Smart and Final or specialty food store)
  • ketchup and mustard
  • Potted plant for display (moss, wheat grass, etc)

Slice the zucchini about 3/4 inch thick and spray both sides with Pam olive oil. Heat a grill pan on medium high heat and grill the zucchini slices until lightly browned. Heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan and cook sausages until browned and cooked through in the center. Then remove from the pan.

While the sausage is cooking, skewer the zucchini slices and cherry tomatoes with the lollipop sticks and arrange in the potted plant. Repeat with the sausage slices. Serve with ketchup and mustard.
