Swabian Bauernschmaus

Bauernschmaus means peasant food. It is difficult to pinpoint exactly if it originated from Austria, Bavaria or Swabia but it is clear that it is german speaking region. The ingredients are basically what you find in a farm. It can be potatoes, sausages, ham, sauerkraut, cheese, eggs. The list is endless. Varies from farm to farm, season to season. Here is one version which I find unusual as applesauce is included. At the weekly fresh market in upper swabian town Biberach, there is a stand which sells this piping hot at €3.50 per portion, €3.00 if without applesauce. And here is the crunch.....You may get a second helping if you are still hungry... and even a third, if you don't feel embarrassed.
  • 500 gm tagliatella (cooked)
  • Smoked ham - cubed
  • Onions - chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • oil for frying
  • handful of chopped chives
  • Apple sauce
  1. Heat pan at high.
  2. Add oil and fry onions till it starts to brown.
  3. Add ham and stir for 30 seconds.
  4. Add tagliatella, stir carefully to loosen up the noodles.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with sprinkling of chives and a good drollop of applesauce.
