Mix the sausage, onions and chives and pour the marinade over. Leave to infuse for approx. 30 minutes. Garnish the salad with radishes.

Tip: The sausage salad tastes particularly delicious with pretzels.

Kaiserschmarrn (pancakes)

A delicious sweet alternative. Whether as a main course or dessert. You can never say no to Kaiserschmarrn.

The ingredients for 2 people are: 80 g flour, 2 eggs, 1 tbsp vanilla sugar, pinch of salt, 125 ml milk, 1 tbsp sugar, 3 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp icing sugar.

Preparation: Preheat the oven to 160° convection oven. Separate the eggs and mix the egg yolks with the vanilla sugar, flour, milk and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Separately, beat the egg whites until stiff, gradually adding the sugar. Carefully fold the beaten egg whites into the batter.

Melt the 2 tbsp butter in a pan and add the batter. Bake over a medium heat for about 2 minutes. Cut the Kaiserschmarrn into quarters with a spatula and let it bake again. Place the pan in the hot oven for about 12 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and tear the patty into pieces with two forks. Sift the icing sugar over the top and spread the remaining butter on top. Caramelise the Schmarrn pieces over a medium heat, turning regularly. Just before serving, dust the Kaiserschmarrn with icing sugar.
