A Bavarian speciality snack food, a cheese spread that's quite tasty despite the name (which basically means "sludged one" in Bavarian dialect). The main ingredient is ripe Camembert cheese, but everything else varies wildly: butter, salt, pepper, diced onion and paprika are the most common, but basically all kinds of spices and herbs can be added as well. The cheese and all bigger ingredients are diced and then everything is simply kneaded together to form a soft mass in which small lumps of Camembert crust and onions should remain - using a blender is right out!

Obatzter is usually spread on bread or Pretzels for consumption, and accompanied by beer.
