Fleischkuekle (also Fleischkuechle, from Alemannic/Franconian "Fleischküchle") is a type of meat pie made with dough, similar to a Cornish pasty, or Russian Chiburekki. The dish is traditional Volga Deutsche/Germans from Russia recipe, and through immigration became an addition to the Cuisine of North Dakota. It is also spelled Fleischkuechle. This dish is also popular among the many Russian-German immigrant families of South Dakota.

The dish is particularly common at main-street diners,[1] especially in Mercer County,[2][3] and on menus at fraternal organizations around the state.[4]

Fleischkuekle is typically served hot from a deep fryer. Hot oil may pool inside when the breading is incompletely sealed, making it a sensible precaution to poke and drain any excess before eating.

In Mercer County, diners typically provide pickles and ketchup on the side. The dish is served with gravy in Fargo. A slice of cheese on top is not an uncommon request.[citation needed]
