Braunschweiger Spread

Sharing is caring!

One doesn’t come across too many Braunschweiger recipes these days, which is a shame as it a delicious ingredient. While you can slice it and serve it up plain on crackers, mixing it up with a bit of cream cheese and seasonings makes a lovely, smooth spread with a zippy taste.

Serve with crackers or even better, toast up some Rye bread, add softened button on top and then a thick slathering of Braunschweiger Spread on top. It is incredible. Enjoy!

    The recipe is great. I substituted minced onion and added some hot sauce whenever I wanted extra zip (I would make one batch and divide in half so I would have both available)

  2. Just picked up some Braunschweiger from Aldi. I usually just eat it cold on crackers but always have so much leftover so I wanted to try something different, made a partial batch of this dip, eating it on saltines as I type this, its yummy and SO easy! I know this is not even remotely healthy but its a great treat! Already saved the recipe.

  3. this dip is delicious but i’m the only one who eats it and i make a big batch…..can i freeze some of it?

    1. Hi Linda- I haven’t tried freezing this so I’m not sure. You could try freezing a small portion overnight and then thaw it the next day to check the consistency and if it froze well. It might require a little mixing after thawing?
