For all of you who don’t live around the Cincinnati area, you are missing out on a LOT of good food! One tasty item that I am hooked on is called goetta. It’s served mostly for breakfast and it is a mix of some meats with oats and spices. You fry it up on the skillet (just use PAM) and cook it until crispy! It is the best thing since sliced bread! It may not be the healthiest thing for you, but it’s worth it every once in a while!
RJ & I came back to our home in FL after spending Christmas in Cincinnati and brought back a couple goetta packages and some La Rosa’s spaghetti sauce (another one of my favorites in Cincinnati) so I was super excited to be able to make it here in FL. One morning RJ & I were craving some goetta. We were out of eggs and didn’t have pancakes, so I was trying to think about what to make other than just goetta. I found a package of croissants and had some shredded cheese. I thought that it would make a perfect match!!
This recipe is super easy! Preheat the oven to package directions on the croissant rolls, I used Pillsbury. Then cut up the goetta into slices, spray the skillet with PAM, and cook them on the skillet on medium high heat. Cook until crispy on the outside and browned. Once cooked, place on a plate over a paper towel.
Take a baking sheet and unroll the croissants onto the sheet. Take your shredded cheese and try to evenly sprinkle the cheese on the rolls. Then take the goetta and place that on top of the cheese. Roll each up where the pointy side would be last and on the outside. Bake according to package directions, or until golden brown.
What you’ll need:
1 package of goetta (I like the spicy version)
1 package of croissant rolls
shredded cheddar cheese
And that’s it!!! How easy is that?? I hope you get a chance to try this (maybe on a splurging day)
Happy Breakfast everyone 🙂
