Bratwurst - Austrian

An Austrian Bratwurst sausage can be made from medium-coarse minced meat or emulsified meat paste. The sausage is stuffed into pork or sheep casings and is served fried in fat or grilled. Bratwurst was already popular in Vienna as early as 1820. The name bratwurst comes from the old German word “brät” (describing the finely-ground filling), and the original spelling was indeed “Brätwurst”. Over the years, as the sausage became popular worldwide, the dots above the letter ‘a’ have disappeared.
