German Pork Knuckle Bavarian Schweinehaxen

German Pork Knuckle Bavarian Schweinehaxen

Oh how I miss Bavaria and the delicious crispy German pork knuckle.  This is by far one of my favorite pork recipes and is very sentimental for me.  This recipe is popular in Bavaria and once you’ve tried it you will know why.  The crackle of the exterior paired with the soft, mouth watering, juicy interior and you will be hooked.  So get ready to travel to Bavaria on this culinary adventure and make sure you pop open a Bavarian lager to go with this dish to make it a truly authentic meal.  Also don’t forget the dumplings.  Oh man I’m already hungry.

A caramelized onion flatbread recipe? ABSOLUTELY and it is extremely delicious! Imagine caramelized onions on a delightful fluffy soft dough, with cheese, and you will be in savory cake heaven.  In German this recipe is called “Zwiebelkuchen vom Blech” directly translated it means onion sheet cake.  However, it is not a “cake” but rather a type of flatbread or even pizza.  Onion cake does not sound as tantalizing as caramelized onion flatbread.  There is definitely no sugar except a pinch to help the dough rise.
