The local ones are called “cervelas” but unlike traditional Czech sausages we don´t find them so convenient for roasting – they have almost no fat and it takes long to roast them. We rather prefer little sausages that are quickly done (nothing is as annoying as impatient hungry kids :)). We buy local “Berner mini wurstel” (wrapped in bacon), chipolatas or white “Nuremberg” sausages. But we’ve seen the locals roasting and skewers, shrimp or so. Schlangenbrot (dough wound up on a stick)
Preferably fresh and pre-sliced at home
3. Mustard or ketchup
We take both 🙂
Sliced cherry tomatoes, radishes or cucumber are our favorites
Despite some healthy baby food advocates having frowning brow and lifting warning finger, we discovered that without chips will not do any trip. Our children like those a la ‘pom-bar’ and we will let them have it with the peace of mind because they don´t definitely eat it every day.
The original Swiss mineral water produced by the unchanged recipe since 1952, which contains herbal and fruit extracts and also whey. And it is related to another item, namely:
7. Plastic cups and paper plates
Except for the pads to put the sausages on, can also serve as great kindling 🙂
8. Paper napkins
and an old dish towel that can be used instead of cooking gloves
9. Aluminum barbecue trays
For turning meat
11. Matches or lighter
Before the trip do not forget to check a number of matches in a box and filling in lighter;)
Multifunctional Swiss Army knife
We dont take paper napkins, aluminum !!
Better put everything in tuperware and take a cloth in stade of napkins better for nature !!!!
Thanks for the tips !!!
Hi Itzi, thanks for commenting! I know the aluminum trays aren´t ideal for nature, but they have proven the most practical for our picnics (for tiny sausages, for skewered meat etc.). Of course we then recycle them in a proper way, don´t burn them in the fire 😉
