"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

2-3 lbs. beef, pork, or both. (I think you could also substitute Venison), 1-2 large onions, cloves, salt, quick or regular oatmeal.

Place meat in pan and cover with water. Cook until tender. Grind meat or process in food processor until medium fine. Put back into the broth. Add chopped onion. Season with salt, pepper and ground cloves. Bring back to a slow boil and thicken with the oatmeal. Must be quite think in order to slice it when cooled. pulse into a loaf pan and chill in refrigerator. Slice and pan fry until crispy on both sides.

Personal Notes:
When I was a little girl, we would sometimes have this when visiting Grandma Moenning. She also gave the recipe to my mom, Carrie, who prepared it for us at home. It is part of our
German heritage.
