German Leberkase Pasta Pan Dish – Easy and Fast

In Germany, especially in the South you can get at every butcher the so called Fleischkaese or Leberkase, some call it veal or Swiss loaf. Leberkase consists of beef, pork, preferably humanely-raised veal, bacon and onions, and it is produced by grinding all ingredients very finely. Then they bake it in a pan until the crust is brown. We love it cold or warm in Germany. It tastes so good in a roll with mustard. Or you can fry it like a Schnitzel. Or mix it with other ingredients such as potatoes or like in this recipe with pasta. Happy Cooking!
