Posted by Papa Cantella's on Sep 19, 2017 9:22:00 AM


Our
heritage may be Italian but at Papa Cantella’s, we love a good German sausage. German sausages are some of the most popular in our lineup of fresh and fully-cooked sausage, in part because they’re such crowd pleasers.

We make several German sausages including our famous Bratwurst, Beer Bratwurst, and Bockwurst. (The word “wurst” just means “sausage” in German.) All are made of high-quality meats like pork and veal and expertly blended with a host of complementary spices. So, when we’re serving German sausages, what do we serve with them? Here are three great side ideas for Deutsche Wurst!
