CINCINNATI — Goetta. It's a food item synonymous with Cincinnati. The Tri-State has a whole festival dedicated to it — Week one of Goettafest 2023 kicked off Thursday night.

While goetta is often enjoyed just fried or on a breakfast sandwich, the meat-oat combo is also a great addition to various recipes. Glier's Goetta has a whole slew of recipes you can make, but here are the Top 9 goetta recipes that are easy to make at home:

Goetta Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are a simple snack or appetizer that you can whip up at home quickly, and goetta is a super easy added topping. Fix up your deviled eggs however you like them and then simply crumble up some goetta and put a heaping on top of each.

Goetta Hanky Pankies

Hanky Pankies are a solid Midwestern appetizer, but they're normally made with ground beef and spicy sausage. With adding in the goetta, you could replace either the ground beef with normal goetta, the spicy sausage with hot goetta or simply add goetta and remove the other meats.
