Etymology[edit]

The first part is probably either Middle High German lab (to clot) or German Laib (loaf); the second part is Käse (cheese) (because it resembles cheese). By folk etymology it was interpreted as Leber (liver) +‎ Käse (cheese), for which reason liver (and even cheese) are sometimes added to the dish.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Leberkäse m (genitive Leberkäses, plural Leberkäse)

  1. A dish similar to meat loaf, popular in southern Germany, Austria and parts of Switzerland.
