Oktoberfests are canceled left and right, but that doesn’t mean you need to be missing out on all of the fun. Why not invite the closest friends in your quarantine bubble to a festive brunch to end the month and Oktoberfest season? This Oktoberfest breakfast sandwich coupled with a cool, refreshing beer sweetened with a bit of German Bärenjäger honey liqueur is surely going to brighten everybody’s mood. For this Oktoberfest-inspired sandwich, I recycled a couple of old, slightly simplified posts for homemade German bratwurst and Obatzda cheese spread, and threw them atop of pretzel bun with a fried egg. It’s that simple!


I did NOT make my own pretzel bun for this post because believe me, I’ll take all the sleep I can get right now (being a mama of a toddler AND newborn now). But if you feel an extra jolt of energy, PLEASE make your own buns as well. I’d recommend using this recipe for pretzel beer bubble bread, and simply shaping 6 large buns instead of making a pull-apart loaf. YUM!

Drink Pairing:

Bärenjäger Shandy

I love the combination of a refreshing German Hefeweizen or Oktoberfest beer and a yummy shot of German Bärenjäger Honey Liqueur stirred right in.  It gives it that perfect amount of sweetness and honey flavor, without being overbearing. Simply perfect for brunch.

Garnish with an apple slice and you’re good to go!
