"I think you found this recipe for me months ago. My dad grew up on this stuff and his mom taught my mom to make it and I grew up on it. Every time I visit my dad in California he asks me to make it, my excuse would be that I lost the recipe. He was looking thru some family albums and found the family recipe stuck in the pages. The original recipe is time consuming and I wasn't looking forward to making it. I armed myself with this recipe and flew down to California. Figured I'd make it; it be ok and he'd be happy that I made the attempt. I made the first batch, I did not add cornmeal as the original recipe does not call for it and I did not want to change the texture. I just cooked it longer til it thickened enough. It does need to be stirred as the oats tend to stick to the bottom of the pot. I fried it in nonstick skillet. This was WONDERFUL! Dad loved it so much that I made 3 more batches to put in his freezer. Thank you so much for hunting this down, you brought an old family dish back to us."
"I grew up in Cincinnati on goetta and this is a great recipe. I have all the recipes however my favorite is the presure cooker method which I have lost. It is no longer printed on the Dorsel's pinhead oatmeal package. Can you or your subscribers help me? Mike"
"Loved it! I just bought a new crock pot and decided to make goetta in it! This recipe was so easy and tasted great! The only thing I omitted was the cornmeal, since some of the other reviews suggested to leave it out.. I refrigerated it overnight and cut it first thing this morning and wrapped it in wax paper and placed it in a plastic freezer bag for later breakfasts.. I took some over to my father in law's house - he said it was great! Thanks so much! Your recipe made me look genius!"
"It was too dry. The traditional recipe, with more water and without the corn meal, has a better texture."
"I was in a creative mood this week and decided to try this recipe. I am glad that I did. I live in PA in the SCRAPPLE belt and have never had Goetta, it was delicious and much healthier than scapple."
