Oktoberfest recipes are usually prepared and served from our favorite German Restaurant, Frieberg’s. We eat there all year long because I have an unhealthy obsession with their brats and pretzels and Mr. Wonderful adores their schnitzel. But this year with COVID going on we decided to try to create our own Oktoberfest at home.
I’ve scoured the web and read countless recipes to put together our menu. I’m seriously excited to try this meal and I thought you might be too. So I am sharing my top picks for Oktoberfest recipes you can make at home.

Menu – Oktoberfest Recipes
The reviewers were so excited about this version of Sauerbraten that I found their adoration a bit contagious. One reviewer claimed this recipe won her an award and many others claimed it tasted like true German Sauerbraten. The addition of the ginger cookies to the gravy has earned rave reviews for being truly authentic. No worries if you can’t find the Juniper Berries at your local market. Many couldn’t and claimed it was still outstanding!
I chose this side for our Sauerbraten because I couldn’t ignore how many reviewers mentioned it in other recipes. When I found the actual recipe I was a bit surprised to discover the addition of cloves. After reading many reviews though, I discovered several people had the same concern and said they ended up loving it anyway. I’m curious.
T introduced us to spaetzle last year and we couldn’t believe we hadn’t ever had it before! It’s really good. We do like to crisp ours up by giving it a quick drop in the frypan after it’s done but it’s good either way.
I know – two starches! Gasp! It’s unacceptable. But… T loves the Spaetzel but Mr. Wonderful adores a German Potato Salad. So, I’m fixing them both. This recipe for Foodie Crush has proven irresistible before so we will be making it again.
This German Apple Cake is on the menu because its apple season around here and we all three agree that apples deserve a spot at Oktoberfest. Also, look how pretty this cake is!!!
So that’s the meal! Do you have an authentic German recipe that you think we should try? If so, please share it in the comments section below. Also, if you try these Oktoberfest recipes at your house please let us know how you liked them. We love to hear from you.
