What To Serve With Bierocks – 11 Delicious Side Dishes

If you’re wondering what to serve with your bierocks, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, I list 11 of the most popular side dishes for bierocks.

In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

The best dishes to serve with bierocks are a honey mustard dip, German-style potato salad, or a creamy corn chowder. You can also serve bierocks with snacks like crinkle-cut fries, potato pancakes, or kroketten. Try buttered carrots, creamed spinach, or a cucumber and onion salad for a lighter option.

Ready? Let’s jump right in.

German potato pancakes

Looking for a filling, traditional side for bierocks? Look no further than these German potato pancakes.

They’re pretty similar to hash browns, but they’re thinner so have more crunch. 

I like to dollop some sour cream on top, but they also work well with apple sauce or a garlic dipping sauce. 

These  German potato pancake are a treat for the taste buds.

Honey mustard sauce

Want to know the secret to oh-so-yummy bierocks?

It’s none other than honey mustard sauce.

The zippy, tangy, and sweet-tasting sauce will cut through the rich, savory flavors of your sandwich, making every bite a delight. 

And you only need six ingredients to make it. 

Warning: this delicious honey mustard sauce is addictive!

German potato salad

Bierocks originated in Eastern Europe, so it makes sense to keep with the European theme. 

This German potato salad is very simple and has a vinegar-based dressing, unlike an American potato salad with a mayo-based dressing and lots of additional ingredients.

It’s plain but tasty and really allows the bierock to shine. 

There’s so much love in this easy Swabia-styled potato salad recipe. It’s a must-try.

Beer-battered onion rings

In Munich, every bite of a bierock is relished with a cold glass of German beer on the side.

Why not recreate that experience with some beer-battered onion rings?

You can have the best of both worlds: a hint of bitter but delicious beer, and the irresistible crunch of onion rings. Yum!

Serve these crowd-pleasing beer-battered onion rings to emulate the excitement of Oktoberfest at home.

Cucumber onion salad

Pressed for time?

Don’t worry. You can make this cucumber and onion salad in just 10 minutes. 

It is fresh and light with a bit of tang from the onion and dill. 

You won’t be able to get enough of this refreshing cucumber onion salad, especially on a hot summer’s day.

Creamy corn chowder

This creamy corn chowder always reminds me of summer. 

But, it is a delicious dish to serve before or alongside your bierocks at an Oktoberfest feast too.

After all, nothing beats the cold winter breeze quite like a warm, hearty soup.

And bierocks are perfect for dipping. 

Take things up a notch and make every bite unforgettable by adding some bacon to your creamy corn chowder.


Fondly known as Kroketten, these Dutch potato croquettes are a delicious side dish for bierocks.

They’re perfect finger food for a party. Your guests can easily grab their fill and go.

Serve them with some of the honey mustard sauce I mentioned above, and you have a match made in heaven.

Creamed spinach

Green vegetables aren’t everyone’s favorite thing. I know.

But this spinach side isn’t your typical steamed veggies. 

The cheesy, nutty sauce is so comforting. And you can use the last bite of your bierock to wipe the plate clean. 

You’ll be glad you gave this creamed spinach a chance. Serve this alongside your bierock for a creamylicious dinner.

Buttered carrots and peas

Brighten your bierocks with these buttered carrots and peas on the side.

This is a classic dish that will never go out of style.

It’s healthy, tasty, and extremely easy to make. 

You can even make it in the microwave, like in this 5-minute buttered carrots and peas recipe.

Perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.

Crinkle-cut fries

Crinkle-cut fries have more surface area than normal fries which means two things.

One, they’re crispier. And two, they’re tastier because there’s more places for the seasoning to stick. 

Elephantastic Vegan seasons her fries simply with salt and parsley. But you can use anything you want. For some heat, use cayenne pepper. Or if you like a smokey flavor, go for paprika. 

Psst… Want something a bit lighter than fries? Go for potato chips instead.

Peanut butter cookies

Indulge your sweet tooth with these tasty peanut butter cookies. They work really well as a little treat for after the bierocks.

They boast crispy edges with a wonderfully soft, melt-in-your-mouth inside. 

And the best part?

They’re easy to make and you don’t need any fancy ingredients.

Everyone will love these thick and chewy peanut butter cookies. And don’t forget the glass of milk.
