What’s the difference between German Bratwurst, Knackwurst and Weisswurst?
Bratwurst is usually a course ground sausage that can be all pork, all beef, bison, venison, veal, lamb or a combination of these. Flavors can be as different as people, usually though, salt, pepper, sugar, nutmeg, mace, garlic and onion are common ingredients. Different flavors for different folks, that’s why Wurstmeister Mike makes 46 flavors and counting.
Knackwurst is a German/European style of sausage. Ground seasoned and smoked in a natural casing to create a knocking sound (bite) when eaten, the natural casing will snap. Great with kraut, red cabbage, potato soup, or just on a pretzel bun with German mustard.
Weisswurst is another German/European type of sausage, ground finely and cooked in water to give its white appearance. Fresh leeks are added to the Weisswurst to further set it apart from other wursts.
Fresh bratwurst requires cooking by grilling, baking or boiling. Hickory-smoked, which is pre-cooked just requires heating. You can do that anyway you like; grilling, baking, boiling….heck, you can even microwave them. Reheating means warm to the touch; you can accomplish this by microwaving for 55 seconds, heating in the oven for 4 minutes or grilling for 6 minutes. Remember, warm to the touch and the hickory-smoked fully cooked flavors are done. Get creative with bratwurst and sausages by slicing them up for a pizza topping, mix into your favorite pasta recipe or even add them to soups and salads. The possibilities are endless.
