The Quick Facts... 

  • 4x pieces per package 
  • Ingredients: pork, water, salt, binder (wheat flour, modified corn starch, potato starch) and our spice mix (mustard, dextrose, salt, spice extracts, lemon extract)

Take it from the people who made their bones and earned their stripes from making and selling sausages at market: these bratwurst sausages are like none other. Made from 100% fresh ground pork, all sourced locally from Ontario farms, our hand-twisted bratwurst sausages are big, juicy, and bursting with flavour.

Goes Great With...

Your favorite mustard. Really! Try Gulden’s spicy brown, Grey Poupon dijon, or Maille Old Style mustard. There’s just something about this combination.

Hand-twisted bratwurst sausage is a flavorful and satisfying meat that also pairs well with a variety of other proteins. Here are three meats that complement hand-twisted bratwurst exceptionally well:

  • Smoked Pork Belly: The smoky, fatty richness of pork belly can be a delightful contrast to the spiced, herby notes of bratwurst sausage. The two meats share a pork base, making them natural companions on the plate.
  • Roast Chicken: For a lighter option that still packs flavor, consider pairing bratwurst sausage with roast chicken. The relatively mild flavor of chicken acts as a nice counterbalance to the robustness of the sausage.
  • Beef Short Ribs: Slow-cooked beef short ribs can add a different texture and a deep, beefy flavor that compliments the spiced and herbed bratwurst sausage. The combination can make for a hearty, meat-centric meal that's sure to satisfy. You can even whip together some mashed potatoes and gravy with white pepper for a side dish.

Our Preferred Preparation...

Preparing hand-twisted bratwurst sausages can be a culinary adventure with multiple cooking methods to choose from. Here are three preferred preparation methods that bring out the best in these sausages:

  • Grilling: This method is often considered the traditional way to cook bratwurst sausage. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and cook the sausages for about 20 minutes, turning occasionally. This technique produces sausages with a crispy exterior and a smoky flavor that many find irresistible.
  • Pan-Searing: For those who don’t have access to a grill, pan-searing is an excellent alternative. Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet over medium heat, and add the bratwursts. Turn them occasionally to ensure even browning. Cook until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F (71°C). The end result is a juicy sausage with a nicely caramelized exterior.
  • Simmer and Sear: This involves initially simmering the bratwurst sausage in a mixture of beer and onions before finishing them off in a hot skillet or on the grill. This two-step process ensures the sausages are fully cooked, while also infusing additional flavors and achieving a crispy exterior.
