If you've ever wondered if the German people have a sense of humor, think no more. On this website (in German), dedicated to Saving the "Butterbrot" or open-faced German sandwich, writers decry the demise of Germany's buttered bread and admit to making their own, using the famous "Graubrot" and German butter as the basis and eschewing baguettes, sandwiches and other foreign travesties.

Mornings and evenings it's a piece of bread, some butter and your favorite toppings. For work or school you place a second piece on top and wrap it in "Butterbrotpapier", a waxed paper product, and tuck it in your satchel. Learn more about Butterbrot here.
