Liptauer – Bread Spread

Today I’ll show you my Liptauer Recipe.
I really like this cheese. Homemade cheese tastes best.
I prefer to refine this spread with crispy herbs and short fried vegetables.
The cheese is a classic spread from Austria and resembles the Obazda from Bavaria.
The preparation takes about 25 minutes. I wish you every success and look forward to your comments.

Liptauer Cheese Spread
Cooked, photographed and written down by chef Thomas Sixt.
Simple guide to prepare spicy spread.
|250||g||Quark (you can also use sheep quark)|
|2||pc||shallots (finely dice!)|
|5||pinch||Salt (I use Himalayan salt or Ursalz from Austria!)|
|5||pinch||Pepper (black pepper is the best)|
|1||tbs||Paprika noble sweet (I double the amount depending on the season, more in winter!)|
|2||pc||Paprika pepper yellow|
|1||pc||bell pepper red|
|3||tbsp||sun flower oil (for frying the herbs)|
Place the quark on a fine sieve and drain well.
Then put the quark in a bowl.
Season quark with salt, pepper, paprika, mustard and caraway, optionally add capers and anchovies.
Cut the shallots in half, peel, finely dice and add to the curd cheese.
Fry the rosemary needles in a pan with a little oil and place them on a paper towel.
Season the fried rosemary with salt and prepare for serving.
Cut the peppers in half, remove seeds and cut into small cubes.
Brown with a little sunflower oil at high heat, then remove from the pan.
Drain the paprika cubes and add 3/4 of the paprika cubes to the Liptauer and mix.
Season the Liptauer again before serving.
Arrange the Liptauer, spread the bread slices, decorate with paprika cubes and rosemary needles and serve quickly.

3. Prepare Liptauer Spread Yourself
Is it worth the effort? In Austria you can buy the spicy cheese from different manufacturers in the supermarket.
Nevertheless, the homemade Cheese still tastes best!
Today I will show you an extraordinary idea with lots of vegetables.
Here, fried herbs are added to the bread as topping.
The result is really colorful and tastes great!

5. Heurigen Spread, “Gypsy Spread” Particularly Tasty
Add freshly roasted peppers to the Liptov spread.
You can quickly prepare the vegetables, fry them in the pan and then serve with the cheese.
Before adding the pepper cubes to the pan, fry a few needles of rosemary.
The fragrant and crispy rosemary is a fantastic addition to this preparation!
