Those who've seen the current Saveur 100 issue may have noticed item #32, a German-style breakfast sausage called goetta that's popular in Cincinnati and unknown anywhere else in America. I love American regionalism and hadn't heard of this food, so I ordered some from the company that makes it, and *man* is it good! It comes in a log, which you can slice into patties and then skillet-fry. It's pork-based (a beef version is also available), with a light spiciness and -- this is the great part -- lots of oats mixed in with the ground meat.
The oats add a nicely toothsome heartiness that's unlike any sausage I've eaten before -- very, very nice. Has anyone else tried it? Any Cincinnati folks wanna chime in?
