Goetta sandwich

Goetta (/ˈɡɛtə/ GHET-ə) is a meat-and-grain sausage or mush of German inspiration that is popular in Metro Cincinnati. It is primarily composed of ground meat (pork, or sausage and beef), pin-head oats and spices. It was originally a dish meant to stretch out servings of meat over several meals to conserve money, and is a similar dish to scrapple and livermush, both also developed by German immigrants.

The 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. Along with Cincinnati chili and mock turtle soup it is, according to Cincinnati food historian Dann Woellert, one of the area’s “holy trinity” of local specialties.
The first commercial producer was Sander Packing.

While goetta comes in a variety of forms, all goetta is based around ground meat combined with pin-head 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, 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. The USDA standards for goetta require that it contain no less than 50% meat.

While similar to Pennsylvanian scrapple and North Carolinian livermush in that it is a dish created by German immigrants and uses a grain product for the purpose of stretching out pork to feed more people, scrapple is made with cornmeal and livermush with either cornmeal or rice rather than the pinhead oats used in goetta.

Goetta is usually sold in logs

Goetta is made with meat, oats, broth, spices, often onions, and occasionally other vegetables, simmered until thick, poured into loaf pans, and chilled or allowed to cool completely so that the loaves become firm enough to slice. It is then cut into slices and fried, often in butter.

Traditionally goetta is served as a breakfast food, but it is also put into sandwiches and used as a topping for burgers and pizza.

A number of commercial distributors produce and sell goetta in the parts of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana near Cincinnati. Glier’s Goetta, established in 1946, produces more than 1,000,000 lb annually, around 99 percent of which is consumed locally in Greater Cincinnati. 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 on the Ohio River waterfront near Newport, Kentucky’s Newport on the Levee. 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 2019 it expanded to two consecutive weekends.

Glier’s markets goetta as the “German Breakfast Sausage,”which may create the impression that it is something commonly eaten for breakfast in Germany. Cincinnati food expert Dann Woellert says, “Will you find something on a menu called goetta in a Westphalian gasthaus? The answer is no,” but that grützwurst and knipp are similar “meat gruels”.

One of America’s Favorites – Oatmeal

Rolled oats (uncooked)

Oatmeal refers, to a preparation of oats that have been dehusked, steamed and flattened, or else a coarse, flour made of hulled oat grains (groats) that have either been milled (ground) or steel-cut. Ground oats are also called “white oats”. Steel-cut oats are known as “coarse oatmeal”, “Irish oatmeal” or “pinhead oats”. Rolled oats were traditionally thick “old-fashioned oats”, but can be made thinner or smaller, and may be categorized as “quick” or “instant”, depending on the cooking time, which is shortened by the size of the oats and precooking.

The term oatmeal is used to describe a common oat porridge made from ground, steel-cut, or rolled oats. Some commercial packages display other ingredients, such as sugar, salt, flavorings, thickeners, vitamins or minerals, while highlighting quick (“instant”) cooking and separately packaged individual portions for convenience.

The oat grains are dehusked by impact, and are then heated and cooled to stabilize the oat, groats – the seed inside the husk. The process of heating produces a nutty flavor in the oats. These oat groats may be milled to produce fine, medium or coarse oatmeal. Steel-cut oats may be small and contain broken groats from the dehusking process (these bits may be steamed and flattened to produce smaller rolled oats).

Rolled oats are steamed and flattened whole oat groats. Old-fashioned oats can be thick and take a while to boil to make porridge. Quick-cooking rolled oats (quick oats) are cut into small pieces before being steamed and rolled. Instant oatmeal is cooked and dried, often with a sweetener, such as sugar, and flavorings added.

Both types of rolled oats may be eaten uncooked, as in muesli, or may be cooked with water or milk to make porridge. In some countries, rolled oats are eaten raw or toasted with milk and sugar, sometimes with raisins added, like a basic muesli. The term “oatmeal” sometimes refers to a porridge made from the bran or fibrous husk as well as the oat kernel or groat. Rolled oats are often used as a key ingredient in granola breakfast cereals (in which toasted oats are blended with sugar and/or nuts and raisins) and granola bars.

Rolled oats are also used as an ingredient in oatmeal cookies, oatcakes, British flapjack bars, and baked oatmeal dessert dishes such as Apple Brown Betty and apple crisp. Oats may also be added to foods as an accent, as in the topping on many oat bran breads and as the coating on Caboc cheese. Oatmeal is also used as a thickening agent in thick, savory Arabic or Egyptian meat-and-vegetable soups, and sometimes as a way of adding relatively low-cost fiber and nutritional content to meatloaf.

Unenriched oatmeal, cooked by boiling or microwave, is 84% water, and contains 12% carbohydrates, including 2% dietary fiber, and 2% each of protein and fat (table). In a 100 gram amount, cooked oatmeal provides 71 Calories and contains 29% of the Daily Value (DV) for manganese and moderate content of phosphorus and zinc (11% DV each), with no other micronutrients in significant quantity

My Veggie Burger keeps falling apart…………..

Eggs are the most common and effective binder, and egg replacers are an excellent alternative for vegan burgers. Other common binders include wheat germ, bread crumbs, oats, and ground flaxseeds. These are dry ingredients, though the recipe’s other ingredients often add just enough moisture to make a sufficient binder.

Start the day with Oatmeal…………………….

Whether it’s steel-cut or rolled, quick-cooking or instant, oatmeal is good for you, experts say—with a few caveats. Oatmeal is rich in fiber, eases the insulin response, and benefits gut health. Benefits also include lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, protection against skin irritation and reduced constipation. In addition, they are very filling and have many properties that should make them a weight loss friendly food. At the end of the day, oats are among the healthiest foods you can eat. As long as it’s sugar-free, eating oatmeal for breakfast is a good choice.
