Made in Germany 23 - August Break #29 - Bavarian Cheese

This wonderful dish is "Obatzter" (no translation available).
It's a traditional Bavarian meal that you eat for a "Brotzeit" (snack between breakfast and lunch). It consists of very ripe Camembert mixed with butter and seasoned with all kinds of spices. Put some radishes in, top with red onion, serve with tomatoes and lettuce - and enjoy with hearty rye bread.
I could kill for one right now!

That looks incredible! It reminds me a little of something we were served in Budpest.

Sounds delicious. Now I wonder what the spices are that are added.

*lach* Obatzter ist Obatzter, da gibts wirklich keine Übersetzung für. Lecker ist er auf jeden Fall!
Obatzt heißt wohl soviel wie "zusammengematscht" oder?

LG aus old Germany

Hello Carola! It was so wonderful to see your comment on my last post. How lovely that you found me. So I hopped on over to your blog to get to know a little about you. It seems that we have "traded" countries with each other. :-)
Obatzer sounds and looks delicious, I must try it some time. I know my husband would love it, and I always am happy to find new ideas for "mahlzeiten". My grandmother was actually born in Bavaria but moved to the USA as a child, so it seems that I have come back to her homeland, sorta to pick up where she and her family left off. I will be back again soon to see the newest posts. So sorry that it took me so long to reply to your nice comment. Life can get hectic at times. :-) Viele Grüße aus Deiner Heimat, Debby
