Landjäger in the kitchen
Did you know that Landjäger can be eaten not only cold but also warm? For most people Landjäger are known to eat cold, for example, on a hike. It is said that they should not be missing in any hiking backpack.
Warm yes, but be careful: Landjäger should not be grilled, because the intense heating of food treated with nitrite curing salt can produce so-called nitrosamines, which are classified as carcinogenic.
On the other hand, you can find many good recipes on the Internet. Especially as a casserole there are great suggestions. As an amateur cook, I myself once started an attempt: Hörnliauflauf with broccoli.
Recipe for 4 persons:
150g Hörnli (here Kernser Dinkelhörnli)
ca. 200g broccoli florets1
pair of Landjäger2
eggs and 1dl cream50g
Preparation: Cook Hörnli al dente and cook the last minute broccoli or blanch separately.
Put the croissants and broccoli together with the Landjäger strips (about 1cm wide) in a gratin dish and pour the sauce over them.
Glaze: mix 2 eggs with the cream and add pepper, salt and herbs (in my case a mixture of Ticino herbs) if desired.
At the end sprinkle the gratin with cheese. I used a mixture for cheesecake, but other cheeses such as Sprinz, Gruyère, etc. are also suitable.
Bake in the oven preheated to 170° Celsius in the middle for about 20 minutes.
