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.
