All about Germand sausages - Bratwurst > Weisswurst > Bockwurst

Bockwurst is often called "Weisswurst" (white sausage) because of its pale color before it is browned. 

How to cook

The easiest way
Simply heat in gently boiling water

Or barbecuing: make 3 or 4 diagonal cuts in the sausage and grill or fry these fully-cooked brats until browned.

You can also place bockwurst on your grill, turning until all sides are a golden brown.

Chef's Secret
For a delicate, crunchy coating, cover the sausages with milk for 10 minutes, then coat the sausages with flour (plain or seasoned). Brown the sausage in a skillet to which you have added vegetable oil. Wunderbar!

How to serve

 This is a traditional sausage from Munich - for the authentic experience, enjoy it with mild mustard, pretzels, radishes and a stein of beer.

Barbecue - Serve with German bread or a crusty roll and spicy mustard or horseradish sauce for a light meal.

Delicious with cabbage or sauerkraut and German fried potatoes (Bratkartoffeln).
