U for überbacken (Ueberbacken)

24 Apr

Let me say that I didn’t manage to find a food starting with U that I could write about.  So instead I go here to write a bit on the term – überbacken – that is used in German world to mean Bake over or bake with. 

ü (u umlaut as it is called — could also be written as ü = ue)

This would mean that food is baked with some topping like Cheese or some special sauce etc.

For example: überbackener Blumenkohl — would mean Baked Cauliflower.  Here is a link to a recipe to show überbackene Spaghetti — http://www.quick-german-recipes.com/easy-baked-spaghetti-recipe.html (in English!) 🙂
