Goetta, Cincinnati

Referred to as “Cincinnati caviar,” this scrapple-like breakfast sausage originated as a way for German immigrants to save money and extend ground pork or beef by adding steel-cut oats. The meat-oat mixture is shaped into a loaf, then sliced off as needed and fried in pork fat until brown and crispy at the edges.
