Goetta is a bold and proud sausage
, first made in Germany
in the late 1800's.
Goetta is surprisingly similar, when cooked on a grill, to regular American hamburger. It's constituent meats are pork and beef, and interestingly, the traditional recipe calls for an almost equal measure of oats.
The sausage, pressed into a skinless loaf, is sliced and cooked in fat and/or butter for a spectacular addition to any breakfast fry up.
The Cincinatti connection is the sausage making family founded by Robert Glier in the year 1946.
