If you’re looking for a delicious summer sausage to make, look no further than bratwurst sausage. This German-style sausage is easy to make and can be customized to your taste. Here are four tips for making your perfect bratwurst: 

  1. Start with the right meat. Bratwurst is traditionally made from veal, but pork or even chicken can also be used. If you’re using pork, use leaner cuts like shoulder or leg meat. If using chicken, use breast meat instead of legs or wings.
  2. Grind the meat yourself. If you’re using ground pork, you can use a food processor to create a smooth texture. If using ground chicken, use your hands to chop the meat into small pieces before processing.
  3. Season the sausage generously. Bratwurst is built on a foundation of salt and spice. Add plenty of garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper to the mixture before shaping it into patties.
  4. Fry up the sausages until they’re golden brown. You can do this by cooking them in a large skillet over medium heat or by grilling them over
