The U-Boat Food Project: Day 1

     Welcome to the U-Boat Food Project!  Each day for the life of the project I will post the menu and either a new recipe or a link to a recipe on this site that i have used that day along with the youtube video for that day.  Due to editing constraints I will be 1 or 2 days behind the actual day I ate that particular meal.  So without further ado here is the menu for day 1.

Breakfast:  3 Wasa crackers, butter, jam and coffee (cream & sugar)

Lunch: fried pork chops, fried potatoes, paprika gravy, iceberg lettuce wedges,  french dressing, baked apples

Supper: tinned kippers (smoked herring), herbed braunschweiger, crackers, coffee (cream & sugar)

     Traditionally, lunch was the largest meal of the day in Germany during the 30's and 40's.  Supper usually consisted of light fare like sausage, cheese and bread.  The original document was vague in most of it's daily menus, basically listing what foodstuffs you were to use on that meal and day so it was up to the cook on board the boat to come up with a recipe for that meal.  Here are links to the recipes used today.  All recipes were converted to be gluten free.

French Dressing

Paprika Gravy

Herbed Braunschweiger
