Oscar Mayer liver cheese is made of pork livers, pork, pork fat, salt and reconstituted onions with less than 2 percent of dextrose, sodium lactate, sodium diacetate, flavorings and sodium nitrite. Liver cheese ingredients vary by manufacturer.

Traditional Bavarian liver cheese, which is known as leberkäse, is a type of sausage made of a blend of finely minced corned beef, pork and onions that is seasoned with marjoram. Leberkäse is cut into half-inch slices and served freshly baked or pan fried or it is sliced thinly and chilled for use in sandwiches, much like the packaged liver cheese available in grocery stores.
