Braunschweiger Spread

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!

Notes: Miracle Whip or mayo can be used in this recipe. I used Miracle Whip and felt that it provided an oomph to the flavor, without it being too strong.
