Top 12 Side Dishes for Bierocks

Here are our top 12 side dishes to serve with bierocks:

1 – German Potato Salad

You know what’s awesome? German potato salad. It’s tangy, savory, and just right for bierocks.

The key ingredients are boiled potatoes, bacon, onion, and a dressing with vinegar and mustard.

The flavor? A perfect blend of sour and salty, with a hint of sweetness. We love making it for BBQs too.

2 – Red Cabbage Slaw

Red Cabbage Slaw is a must-try side. Crunchy cabbage, tangy vinegar, and a hint of sweetness combine perfectly.

To make it, you need red cabbage, apples, carrots, and a tangy dressing.

This slaw’s flavors balance the richness of bierocks. It adds a fresh, zesty touch to the meal.

Trust us, this vibrant dish never disappoints.

3 – Cheesy Broccoli Casserole

Remember when your family didn’t like veggies? A single bite of this casserole changed that for us. Cheesy, creamy, and oh-so-comforting. It’s like broccoli and cheese had a perfect marriage.

Ingredients? Simple: broccoli, cheddar cheese, cream of mushroom soup, breadcrumbs. We like to add a bit of garlic for extra flavor.

The cheese melts into a luscious sauce that hugs every piece of tender broccoli. The breadcrumbs on top bring a crunchy contrast. Definitely worth trying.

4 – Carrot and Raisin Salad

Carrot and raisin salad? Totally underrated. We start with fresh, shredded carrots and mix in plump raisins.

The contrast of crunchy carrots and sweet raisins is amazing. Toss it with a tangy citrus dressing, and you’ve got a winner.

Our secret tip? Add a pinch of cinnamon. It takes the flavor to another level.

5 – Dill Pickles

Alright, dill pickle fans, this one’s for us. They’re crunchy, tangy, and just the right amount of salty. We whip up ours with cucumbers, dill, garlic, and a vinegar brine.

The flavor? Bright and bold with a hint of garlic. We love adding them to sandwiches or munching as a snack. These pickles? Total life-savers.

6 – Creamed Spinach

Ever tried creamed spinach? It’s rich, creamy, and indulgent. The secret lies in fresh spinach, heavy cream, garlic, and a touch of nutmeg. The cream blends with spinach, giving an elegant taste.

We add a pinch of parmesan for extra oomph. This dish? A certified hit at family dinners. The texture is silky, the flavor divine.

7 – Roasted Beets

Roasted beets are a game-changer. Earthy and slightly sweet, they pair beautifully with bierocks. We love them for their vibrant color and rich flavor. Ingredients? Simple: beets, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Roast until tender, and you’ll get caramelized perfection. Personal tip: drizzle with balsamic glaze for a tangy kick.

Roasted beets always steal the show on any plate.

8 – Cucumber and Dill Yogurt Salad

This salad is a fresh side dish that we can’t get enough of. It’s crisp, tangy, and super refreshing.

Ingredients? Fresh cucumbers, Greek yogurt, dill, and a hint of lemon juice. The dill and lemon make the flavors pop just right.

We love the crunch of cucumbers combined with the creaminess of yogurt. It’s the perfect cool companion to our bierocks. Quick tip: let it chill for a bit before serving.

That extra cold makes it even better.

9 – Roasted Parsnips

Roasted parsnips are underrated. They’re earthy, sweet, and pair great with bierocks. We roast them with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

They caramelize beautifully and get a crispy edge. The flavor is nutty with a hint of sweetness.

We like adding a pinch of thyme for a touch of herbiness. Perfect side, trust us!

10 – Apple Sauerkraut

It’s tangy, sweet, and crunchy! We mix shredded cabbage with tart apples, salt, and a bit of caraway seeds.

The contrast is exceptional. Apple sauerkraut brings a perfect balance to bierocks. Apples add a hint of sweetness to the tangy kraut.

It’s our go-to for a fresh, crisp side that surprises everyone.

11 – Pretzel Bites with Mustard Dip

Pretzel bites are tiny bits of joy. Crispy outside, soft inside. We make them with flour, yeast, salt, and water.

For the dip, we use mustard, mayo, and a hint of honey. Tangy, creamy, and slightly sweet.

We can’t get enough of their saltiness with the rich mustard. They’re bite-sized happiness.

12 – Bavarian Lentil Soup

This soup is hearty and flavorful. We use lentils, onions, carrots, and celery. The broth is rich with herbs and spices.

It’s hearty yet light. Perfect for any meal. We love it as a warm, comforting side.

Our tip: add a splash of vinegar to brighten the flavor. This one is a family favorite.
