This is Leberkäse. The best way to describe this in English is as bologna loaf. Yes, I know that sounds disgusting, but it’s not so bad.
It is a typical food in Southern Germany, where Marco is from, but unfortunately it isn’t so common up here. So it is always a special treat for the German boyfriend when he manages to find it in the grocery store.
Most people eat it as street food on a roll, but we usually just cut 1-inch slices. I love dipping it in sweet mustard (süßer Senf).
Since we just got back from a trip to the south, Marco stocked up on 2 kg of Leberkäse. One went straight into the freezer, and we ate the other one last night. Thankfully, I think he is finally getting sick of eating it 🙂
