Family Favorites…Braunschweiger Spread
The Iowa Housewife
My son made and brought this braunschweiger (or liver sausage) spread or dip to a Christmas party, and it was a big hit. They used to live in East Dubuque, and he says it is served on every restaurant buffet around there. Bettie has seen it on her country club buffet in this part of Iowa too.
Now Myrna and I were raised in a predominantly German community and both love braunschweiger, but we hadn’t tried it like this! Dave made us each a container of it for Christmas, and we loved it and had to have the recipe. Dave says it does freeze well too, if you can’t use the entire recipe at once. He has tried a different version and thinks this is still the best one – it was given to him by Joann Pregler – thanks, Joann. We like the braunschweiger that comes in a larger roll with a yellow wrapper – John Morrell and Hillshire Farms are two brands; there are others in other parts of the country – use your favorite. Our new favorite is from Frick’s…from Missouri.
I’m posting it so you can perhaps make it for your super bowl party; although it would be good anytime. We ate ours on some crackers, and the next day as sandwich filling on homemade bread with real butter – my absolute favorite – but I think it’s also great on party rye bread slices.
