October 4, 2021 | Recipes

Sundekaes is a classic German cheese spread originally created in Mainz. When it’s paired with soft chewy pretzel bread and a smoky tangy Salami they  are impossible to resist!



1 package of pretzel buns

1 package of Freybe Cervelat Salami 

10 walnuts, optional for garnish

10 gherkins, optional for garnish

10 cherry tomatoes, optional for garnish


For the Spundekaes

1/3 cup cream cheese

1/3 cup quark if you can’t find quark you can use drained Greek yogurt

1/3 cup sour cream

1/4 of a small white onion chopped fine

1 small garlic clove minced

1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika



To make the Spundekaes, combine the cream cheese, quark and sour cream in a small bowl until smooth. Stir in the onion, garlic and paprika. Store in refrigerator until ready to prepare the canapes

To make the canapes, slice the pretzel buns into 1/2 inch thick slices, add a dollop of the Sundekaes to each slice and gently add a folded slice of  the Cervelat Salami

Garnish each with one or two items from the garnishes mentioned above.

Makes approximately 20 canapes
