And i bet you guys don´t know what a "Mettbrötchen" is.

;)

Though it´s a very, if not most, common snack in Germany you´ll be able to buy at almost any butcher´s shop (and yes, we´ve got more butcher´s shops than McD and BK restaurants together), even often at bakeries.

Cheers

I know what a Mettbrochen is! Do I win a prize?

I was offered one quite some time ago in Germany and declined, not really sure about raw pork!!!

What's to be sure about? Bacon is good. Pork chops are good. Raw pork!? Not good. :shakehead

Yes Sir, you´re the official winner of a "Mettigel" (as per attached pic) to be handed over next time you visit Germany.

Yes, "Mett" is raw minced/ground pork but no problem at all if made fresh under proper hygienic conditions and consumed fresh. "Thuringian Mett" is already refined with onions, salt and pepper what will otherwise typically have to be added prior to consumption.

Below attached pic shows what a typical "Mettbrötchen" looks like.

Those European quarter pounders look way better than ours. :sigh:

I think they call something like Mettbrochen a "cannibal sandwich" here in Wisconsin (large German population). You can google it for news articles about it. I believe my grandma used to eat them. Raw beef, raw onions, salt and pepper on rye bread.

You don't believe that's the way they'll actually look when served at a European Micky D's, do you? :nana: Those pictures are just advertising baby.

How about a Maryland soft shell crab sandwich on toast with lettuce tomato and mayo.
I'm drooling.

Just tried the hot new local dessert trend, Prune Cake; basically just good chocolate cake with a touch of prune thrown in to add a distinct dark fruity note. Excellent stuff, hope it catches on.

Over cooked the cordon bleu. The cheese was just gone and the chicken dried out. Still was good, though.
