Leberkaese – German Sausage Loaf and Favorite Bavarian Breakfast Food

As a local German from Munich, the capital metropolis of Bavaria, I really like to inform my buddies about leberkaese. I work as a chef in Austin, Texas and my friends name me Chef Keem. Unfortunately, no butcher in the whole nice State of Texas appears to be keen to make and promote this implausible Bavarian sausage loaf. Most people take into consideration a sure canned meat product once I describe my favourite breakfast meals from the Old Country. But actually – there isn’t any comparability!

The phrase leberkaese is a mix of leber (German for liver) and kaese (German for cheese), however you can see neither one among these meals on the checklist of elements. There are completely different interpretations of the origin of the identify. Most probably it comes from previous German phrases describing the form of the product.

Although the usage of seasonings and spices could fluctuate relying on areas and particular person preferences, a normal recipe comprises a fundamental set of excessive-high quality elements: lean beef and pork, bacon with the rind, recent onion, salt, pepper, marjoram, garlic, and lemon zest. All that is floor finely in a buffalo chopper with the suitable blade, till it turns into a clean paste of effectively-blended elements. After this meat paste is crammed into loaf pans, it’s baked to a juicy pink inside with a medium brown crust on prime.

A slice of freshly baked leberkaese is fantastic with recent bread, normally a sourdough roll that has been been cut up in halves. A squirt or two of some candy Bavarian mustard full this conventional Munich breakfast dish. Another nice preparation is to brown a slice on the griddle or in a frying pan, and serve it with fried potatoes and eggs sunny-aspect-up.

Whenever I ordered a loaf of genuine leberkaese from a Bavarian butcher in Wisconsin, my friends had been impressed with the standard and good style of this comparatively unknown dish. I hope that extra American foodies will uncover this juicy Bavarian specialty throughout their subsequent go to to a German restaurant.
