This Bavarian specialty is typically eaten as a mid-morning snack because of it is high perishable. (The Bavarians say that Weißwurst should not be allowed to hear the 12:00 noon church bells for this fact.) It is a mix of minced veal and pork bacon, flavored with fresh spices.
Try it with the traditional German mustard and that other Bavarian staple, the Brezen (pretzel).
This is a popular item with Bavarian butchers, who produce fresh Leberkäse at least twice a day. In other regions of Germany, this meatloaf contains liver. But Bavaria is the exception, usually using fresh beef, pork and lard. It is also often eaten for a mid-morning snack.
Only in Germany will you find a “salad” made almost completely of sausage. Some lettuce and onions are usually served together with it.
Leberknödel are another Bavarian favorite, made with bread dumplings, onions and liver. They’re too good!
