Find Long-lost German Recipes?

Perhaps it's a recipe you remember from your Oma? Perhaps it's something you tried in a German restaurant?

Don't know how to spell it? Use phonetic spelling. Give me some idea what the recipe is like, what possible ingredients it has, what it looks like (perhaps you have an old photograph), where you had it -- anything to help me find it.

The more you write about it, the easier it will be for me or someone else to identify it.
