Das Butterbrot, The German Sandwich

Butterbrot is the German word for a slice of bread smeared with butter. One can think of these as sandwiches. However, in the German cuisine, they are most often served open-faced, with a good portion of butter on each slice.

The Butterbrot sounds very simple, but it is the basis of many morning, in-between, and evening meals. It can be enjoyed just as is, but it is most often topped with additional ingredients, such as wurst, cheese, vegetables, and/or herbs. Sweet toppings, such as jam, fruits, chocolate, or sugar, also works well in making the Butterbrot a sweet treat.
