I have. With Pork Knuckle.. yummy. Is that where the Yank expression for WW2 Germans was derived.
You're right, pork knuckle with sauerkraut is a classic (which I have never had) but for sauerkraut to become a nickname a majority must eat tons of it and that may, indeed, have been the case in the late 19th, early 20th century when sauerkraut was almost the only vegetable and one of the rare sources of vitamin C (apart from potatoes and apples) available in winter. It was stored in barrels in almost any household. I don't know what people in other European countries ate because they didn't have that nickname.

Thanks, Jessica. At last I'm getting a chance to show my extensive encyclopedic knowledge...😆🤗

1. In which film would you find One Eyed Willie? 🤔
2. In which film would you find the characters Jack and Rose fighting to stay alive? War of the Roses?
3. What car did Mr Bean drive? A Mini Metro
4. Who played Fonzie in Happy Days? 🤔
5. What is a traditional German breakfast,? That's a good one. I'm curious. ☺ Most people have rolls with either jam or cheese/sausage on them. Is that traditional? What I'm sure about is that they don't have an English one. 😇

Good luck
1. The Goonies.
2. I love War Of The Roses but it is Titanic.
3. Nearly right, the answer is mini.
4. Henry Winkler.
5. Our fry up breakfasts are pretty famous 😄I don't tend to have them very often though 😇

I like frankfurters, I think I've spelt it correctly, delicious with lots of onions and ketchup in a bread roll 😋
