Gering Bakery

Our hearts were won over by the cabbage burger - they are fully enclosed pillows of tender bread inside of which is a heap of juicy beef and peppery bits of cabbage and onion. Delicious; real comfort food. We very much liked the crisp-edged old-fashioned cake donuts and fell instantly in love with something called a peanut butter pretzel. That's a twisted piece of pastry dough generously frosted with sweet peanut butter icing.

Here is a food that dates back to the Volga Germans who settled on the American plains over a century ago. They brought with them their recipes for a baked yeast-dough bread pocket filled with beef, cabbage or sauerkraut, and onions. It is generally known as a bierock or runzie, but here at Gering Bakery it is a cabbage burger.

If you like peanut butter and have a serious sweet tooth, the frosting on Gering Bakery's peanut butter pretzel will send you into orbit.

It's good to know what the local specialties are before you visit a strange place. Knowing that Nebraska is home of the Runza and the bierock helped us guess (correctly) that 'cabbage burger' was a name for the same thing.

I highly recommend the bear claw doughnut, one of my family favorites.

I was so busy admiring the handsome facade of this old small-town bakery that I didn't notice the sign in the window for cabbage burgers (see photo below).
