A Never-Miss Goetta Recipe

Goetta is a German-American type of breakfast sausage. Particularly popular in Cincinnati, goetta is made from ground meat, spices and oats. It can be used not only for breakfast, but also for sandwiches, casseroles and even lasagna.


Before lining up your ingredients, preheat your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Then you’ll need one can of Grandma Werling’s goetta. Remove meat from can and break it into small pieces. Also, cut up 2 large green peppers, 2 medium unions and 1 large box of mushrooms.


In a buttered frying pan, fry the goetta until its crispy. In a separate pan, sauté the cut-up pieces of green peppers, mushrooms and onions. Add butter and salt to taste. In a pot of boiling water, cook 4-5 large lasagna noodles. When cooked, drain and remove from pot. On the bottom of a baking dish (13 by 9 by 12) spread half the crispy goetta and cover it with 3 slices of American cheese and 4 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese.


On top of the cheese, half of the vegetables should be added and then it all can be covered with the lasagna noodles. The second layer will consist first of the remaining vegetables and American cheese. Another 8 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese is added along with the rest of the crispy goetta. To finish the dish, toast 6 slices of bread. Crumble the warm toast and top the lasagna with it. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes and enjoy!
