Candidate for Customization: Bratwurst

Posted by Papa Cantella's on Feb 15, 2018 9:40:00 AM

 

Bratwurst is, perhaps, the quintessence of sausage.

The centuries-old German sausage is a mainstay here in the states, particularly for grilling. Bratwurst’s defining characteristics are its link shape, its thickness, and its composition of either pork, beef, veal, or some combination of the three.

That said, there are over 40 different kinds of sausages officially recognized as “bratwurst,” and that’s just in Germany.

Bratwurst is the absolute perfect vehicle for customization. It’s flexible enough to make it your own, and distinctive enough to be a standout on any menu. So, how can you customize bratwurst?
