Oktoberfest is a great time to build a feast!
Here’s the good news: Oktoberfest is the perfect time to celebrate all things fall. You don’t even have to be German to get in on the fun. In fact, you can shop online in the app or at your local Tom Thumb for great fall party food.
Not sure where to start? Let’s talk about the appetizers. Soft pretzels and hot, molten beer cheese are a winning combination. Roasted potatoes and cabbage is another combo that’s a classic crowd favorite. Maybe sauerkraut isn’t up your alley yet, but there’s other ways to enjoy cabbage.
Firing up the grill isn’t a bad idea when there’s sausages and vegetables to enjoy. Bratwurst is a sausage that really tastes fantastic after cooking on the grill. Hot cheese dips are a great way to enjoy bratwurst, as well as spicy mustard to help balance the bold flavor of the sausage.
Oktoberfest feasts tend to be right as the weather begins to turn cooler, but summertime heat isn’t always gone for the year. This calls for breaking out cold beer and cider. Authentic German beers are full flavored, hearty, and an excellent addition to the feast. Non-alcoholic cider is a great option for those looking to capture the spirit of the season without drinking alcohol.
Don’t forget to head to the bakery. Not only does bratwurst go well with soft buns, you want to get desserts for the feast! German chocolate cake is a great addition to the table, but feel free to grab cookies, pies or even brownies. If you order ahead, you can even create a custom cake order with an eye-catching design.
No matter what you decide to serve, you can purchase all your party food online in the app or at your local Tom Thumb.
