Leberkäse (Liver Cheese)

Also Known As:  Fleischkäse

This is a flavorful, compact, pink meat-loaf. It is made wtih beef and/or pork. Some lighter versions are made with turkey meat. It is baked in a loaf pan and made without a casing. The amount of liver that is included varies by region. In Bavaria, no liver is added, which is why it is called "Fleischkäse" (Fleisch means meat). Other regions may include liver and there are even regulations specifying the exact amounts of liver required. For example, Stuttgarter Leberk√§se must contain at least 5% liver. Coarse Leberk√§se, where chunks of liver are visible in the loaf, must also contain a minimum of 5% liver.
