I had purchased some JTM Hogies to grill for dinner tonight but forgot to pick up a bag of Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Mini Sub Buns. Friday’s are always busy at local Walmarts and sometimes real tough to get an electric cart, and if your handicapped and rely on the carts to get around you go early. So I went early this morning, around 7:00 and grabbed a package of the buns and some milk. After that I’m on my way home and it happened my car was pulled into the parking lot of the Golden Arches, McDonald’s! I haven’t had a Breakfast Sandwich or anything else from McD’s in at least 5 – 7 years. But in a moment of weakness and convenience I had a Sausage McMuffin. I’m not going to lie the sandwich never stood a chance! I inhaled it and it was delicious. It may not be another 5 – 7 years before I have another!

Couldn’t wait to try something new with the Glier’s Turkey Goetta! I prepared a Turkey Goetta, Diced Potatoes, and Egg Breakfast Skillet w/ Whole Grain Toast. I knew after frying up the Goetta for Breakfast yesterday it would go great in a Skillet Breakfast or Hash. I was right the Breakfast Skillet turned out as one great Breakfast Dish!
I used Glier’s Turkey Goetta, Simply Potatoes Seasoned Diced Potatoes, fresh grated Dutch Gouda Cheese, and 1 Egg (per person). I used a large skillet that I sprayed with Pam and used Canola Oil (1 Tbs) as my Oil and cooked on medium heat. I first added the Diced Potatoes to the skillet, they take the longest to cook. While they were beginning to cook in a separate small skillet I started to brown my Turkey Goetta. I cooked it till it just started to brown and turned the skillet off as it would finish cooking when I added to the Diced Potatoes. When the Potatoes were almost ready I added the Goetta and shredded Gouda Cheese. After adding everything together I gently folded everything twice. I didn’t want to stir it because I didn’t want to break down the Potatoes or Goetta too much. After plating I topped it with a fried Egg, a Poached Egg would go great with this also. I also had a side of toasted Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Light Bread. It came out delicious! The combination of Diced Potatoes and Turkey Goetta is a good one. I love how the Goetta browns up and gets crispy. I’m glad I finally got around to joining that Goetta Nation!

I’ve got my member card and as of 7:20 am this morning I am a proud Member of the Goetta Nation! I had been wanting to try Goetta for quite sometime so while shopping the other morning I came across Glier’s Turkey Goetta and I grabbed a couple of loaves of it, and am I glad I did!
I sliced some up into sausage like patties and pan fried them in Canola Oil. They fried up fantastic, crispy and delicious. Much like Sausage Patties but they fry up a bit more crispy and the seasoning and Steel Oats in them. But they are delicious and will be part of my Breakfast menus from now on! These would make a fantastic Hash!
For Breakfast I had 2 Goetta Turkey Patties, a serving of Hash Browns and buttered Toast. For my parents I prepared Eggs Sunnyside Up, Turkey Goetta Patties, Hash Browns, and Buttered Toast. My Dad had tried Goetta years ago but my Mom had never tried either. She is now a Goetta lover also! Love that Glier’s Turkey Goetta!

of ground meat (pork, or pork and beef) and steel-cut oats. Pronounced gétt-aa, ged-da or get-uh Americanized pronunciation, this dish probably originated with German settlers from the northwestern regions of Oldenburg, Hannover, and Westphalia who emigrated to the Cincinnati area in the 19th century. The word “Goetta” comes from the Low German word götte.
Goetta was originally a peasant dish, meant to stretch out servings of meat over several meals to conserve money.
The modern popularity of goetta in Cincinnati has led to it being called “Cincinnati Caviar”. Glier’s Goetta, the largest commercial producer of goetta, produces more than 1,000,000 lb (450 metric tons) annually, around 99% of which is consumed locally in greater Cincinnati.
While goetta comes in a variety of forms, all goetta is based around ground meat combined with pin head or steel cut oats. Usually goetta is made from pork shoulder or “Cali”, but occasionally contains equal parts pork and beef. Goetta is typically flavored with bay leaves, rosemary, salt, pepper, and thyme. It contains onions and sometimes other vegetables.
While similar to scrapple in that it contains a grain product and meat for the purpose of stretching out the meat over several days, goetta looks very different. Scrapple is made with meal while goetta uses steel-cut or chopped oats. The oats in goetta are much coarser than the fine powder used in scrapple and add texture to the dish.
Due to the popularity of goetta in the Cincinnati metro area, a number of commercial distributors produce and sell it in the parts of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana near Cincinnati. The most popular of these brands is Glier’s Goetta, the largest producer of goetta in the world. Glier’s Goetta is based in Covington, Kentucky, part of the greater Cincinnati area.
In the Greater Cincinnati area, there have been annual celebrations since 2004 with the central theme of Goetta.
The “Original Goettafest” is an annual cultural and culinary celebration held in Covington, Kentucky, just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio. Covington has a rich heritage of German immigrants and this festival is held in MainStrasse Village, an area of Covington a few blocks from the Ohio River. In 2006, this celebration was held June 17 and 18.
“Glier’s Goettafest” is a similar event held near Newport, Kentucky‘s “Newport on the Levee“(an entertainment, shopping and restaurant complex) on the Ohio River waterfront. The festival celebrates both the dish and Greater Cincinnati’s German American heritage. While the main focus of the festival is goetta, served in many different ways, it also typically includes music, dancing, and other public entertainment. In 2011, the festival was held August 5 through 7.
