Barbecue Chicken and Chard Quesadillas
Dark leafy greens give this healthy chicken quesadilla recipe a vitamin K boost. We also boosted the flavor in regular barbecue sauce. Serve with guacamole, sour cream, shredded lettuce and/or salsa, if desired…………..

Filet Mignon with Blueberry-Bourbon Barbecue Sauce
Blueberries, loaded with antioxidants, have a balance of sweet and sour, which makes them an excellent base for a rich, tangy barbecue sauce. Fresh thyme rubbed on the steak dovetails wonderfully with the blueberries. Serve with fresh tomato wedges…………..

Pork Chops with Peach Barbecue Sauce
The tangy peach barbecue sauce that glazes these pork chops is incredible on grilled chicken or salmon as well. Bone-in pork chops (as opposed to boneless) are less likely to dry out. Just make sure to trim away as much fat as possible for healthier results………………….

One of America’s Favorites – Goeta

Goetta sandwich

Goetta is a meat-and-grain sausage or mush of German inspiration that is popular in the greater Cincinnati area. It is primarily composed of ground meat (pork, or pork and beef), pin-head oats and spices. Pronounced gétt-aa, ged-da or get-uh in Americanized pronunciation, and gutta in the Low German pronunciation, this dish probably originated with German settlers from the northwestern regions of Oldenburg, Hannover, and Westphalia who emigrated to the Cincinnati and Dayton area in the 19th century. The word “Goetta” comes from the Low German word Grötte. North of Cincinnati, specifically in the region surrounding Darke, Mercer, Shelby, and Auglaize counties, goetta is often known by the term “grits”, not to be confused with hominy grits. This usage of the word “grits” stems from the High German word “Grütze,” which is an equivalent of the Low German Grötte.

Goetta was originally a peasant dish, meant to stretch out servings of meat over several meals to conserve money.

Glier’s Goetta, the largest commercial producer of goetta, produces more than 1,000,000 lb annually, around 99 percent of which is consumed locally in Greater Cincinnati.


A conventional log of Goetta

While goetta comes in a variety of forms, all goetta is based around ground meat combined with pin-head or steel-cut oats, the “traditional Low German cook’s way of stretching a minimum amount of meat to feed a maximum number of people.”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 uses a grain product for the purpose of stretching out meat to feed more people, goetta looks very different. Scrapple is made with cornmeal 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.



Goetta is typically formed into small loaves, and then cut into slices and fried, often in butter. Traditionally goetta is served as a breakfast food.


A number of commercial distributors produce and sell Goetta in the parts of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana near Cincinnati. Glier’s is the largest producer of goetta in the world. Glier’s Goetta, established in 1946, is based in Covington, Kentucky, part of the greater Cincinnati area. Queen City Sausage is the next largest producer, while multiple small and artisanal producers also make Goetta in and around Cincinnati.


“Glier’s Goettafest” is an annual culinary festival held in August 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.


Goetta is usually sold in logs but links are also available.

Glier’s markets goetta as the “German Breakfast Sausage,” which may create the impression that it is something commonly eaten for breakfast in Germany. In fact, the vast majority of Germans have never heard of goetta. However, a similar product known as Knipp can be found in the present day in Bremen and surrounding areas. This can be spread onto bread or pan fried like goetta. It is also often served with apple sauce, paralleling the apple butter which is served alongside goetta. Although in modern times in most parts of Germany, eating warm sausage for breakfast or a hot breakfast in general is not common, historically Knipp was eaten for breakfast, often in the winter.


Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Don’t stab and let it sit………

Never stab the meat with a fork or knife to flip it over. Punctures allow juices to escape and can lead to drying of the meat and less-flavorful. Always use a spatula or tongs when you need to turn your meats. Also always let your meat rest 5-8 minutes before slicing. This allows it a chance to sit will help the juices to disperse throughout the center of the meat, which means a more flavorful meat.

Making Meatballs……..

If the meatballs are packed too tightly and compactly, they’ll turn out tough and chewy. Oil your hands so that the mixture won’t stick to them and gently and quickly form the meatballs. Better yet, use a small ice cream scoop to make uniformly-sized meatballs. Also Bake them, and not fry them. They brown up better when baked, healthier, and less mess. Enjoy the Meatballs!
