What is a Bratwurst?
Wurst Sausage: There are over 1,500 different kinds of sausages coming out of Germany, all with different names, ingredients, flavors, and characteristics. To simplify things, wursts are grouped into three broad categories:
- Kochwurst: Primarily boiled sausages such as liverwurst (braunsweiger), homemade liver sausage, or blood and tongue sausage.
- Bruhwurst: Parboiled or scalded. Bratwurst, homemade wieners, ring bologna and yachtwurst would be considered bruhwurst.
- Hartwurst or Rohwurst: Hard, dry, preserved sausage. Mostly sliced and eaten cold. Some examples would be hard salami and our own summer sausage.
Today, wursts are so much a part of everyday German life that the word itself is in everyday sentences and slang. For example, whenever there is a crucial decision to be made, Germans often say, "The wurst is at stake!" ("Es geht um die Wurst!")
Bratwurst: Known primarily as a "frying" sausage, this linked German sausage may be fresh or precooked. They are usually 1" to 1 1/2" in diameter and 4" to 6" long. It may be a fine or coarse ground wurst and is always browned before serving - either in a skillet or on a grill. They are most popular in Germany, Switzerland and parts of the United States.
Thawing: If frozen, leave bratwurst in package and thaw in refrigerator overnight.
Cooking: Put thawed brats on a hot grill, 8-10 minutes on each side. If frying, use one tablespoon of butter or margarine. On medium heat, fry both sides 8-10 minutes, covered. Precooked, Potato, and baby Bratwurst will take less time.
Beer Brats: Put thawed brats in a deep pan. Pour one can of your favorite beer for every four bratwurst. Add onions if desired. Cook on medium-high and boil for 5-10 minutes. Take brats out of beer, discard liquid, and grill or panfry on both sides until browned. (Some people grill brats first, then simmer in beer - whatever preference.)
Side Dishes: Traditional Side Dishes for bratwurst consist of sauerkraut, hashbrowns, baked beans, mushrooms, and/or German potato salad in our deli case.
