Fool’s Gold Loaf



o 2 T margarine
o 1 loaf Italian white bread
o 1 lb / 450 g bacon slices
o 1 jar of smooth peanut butter
o 1 jar of grape jelly

Preheat the oven to 350F/180C. Spread the margarine generously all over all sides of the loaf. Place it on a baking sheet in the oven.

Meanwhile, fry the bacon in a bit of oil until it is crisp and drain it thoroughly on paper towels.

Remove the loaf from the oven when it is evenly browned, after approximately 15 minutes. Slice the loaf lengthwise and hollow out the interior, leaving as much bread along the walls as desired. Slather a thick layer of peanut butter in the cavity of the loaf and follow with another thick layer of grape jelly. Use lots of both.

Arrange the bacon slices inside the cavity, or, if desired, layer the bacon slivers between the peanut butter and jelly. Close the loaf, slice and eat.

Goetta Pie

4-6 eggs
1/2 or more Goetta


Teflon pan w/ lid

A Breakfast meal, served with toast, juice and or coffee.

This is a simple, easy to prepare all-in-one breakfast that will
absolutely please every one that has ever tasted and fallen in love with
Glier’s Goetta; regular or hot!

First, use a Teflon frying pan that has a lid (we’ll use the lid when the
eggs go in)…. put 1/2 lb or more Goetta in pay and spread around like a
giant pancake…completely covering the flat portion of the pan.

Now, with the cover off, cook the Goetta half way (around 10 minutes on
low-medium heat…just enough to get the bubbles and heat coming thru the
top of the goetta.

Now, add your eggs… about 2 per person or 6 for every 1/2 lb of Goetta.
I like to just crack them and drop them in and adjust the yellow
(unbroken) yokes evenly around the pan. Some like scrambling them in a
bowl and pour the mixture in over the top of the goetta layer. Your

Now, with the eggs covering the goetta, salt and season to taste and cook
with the cover on (this will cook the eggs on top)…. check every 3 or 5
minutes until the eggs are cooked to your liking.

When done, just loosen the edges with a fork or knife and slip the pie
onto a plate for cutting and serving….yum!

Goetta Wonton

Wet the edges of the wonton wrap and press together to seal. Deep fry until golden brown. Drain and use as an hors d’oeuvre. For a larger snack, use egg roll wraps and shape like an egg roll.
