Traditional German sausage recipes ("Selbsgemachte Bratwurst") don't sound healthy. However, you can control what is in them - the amount of fat and filler. Then, you can enjoy the great taste of delicious sausages as part of your healthy quick recipes collection.
If you purchased German sausages, then you'll want to check out how to cook those "Bratwurst". However, if you'd rather make your own sausage, here's a recipe that's easy. These are sausage patties with a WOW taste! Make sure to keep reading below the recipe for more information.
I don't stuff these inside of casings. (Did you know casings are made from either pork or cow intestines or from plastic!)
Sausage patties are just hamburger patties, made slightly different, with different spices. If you can make hamburger patties, you can make sausage patties.
When you mix the meat - literally knead it to mix the spices and give the sausage texture. (Different than making hamburgers which are gently mixed). If at all possible, let mixture stand for about 6 hours for the spices to fully flavour the meat. However, I've been in a hurry and BBQ'd them right away.

Here's what some of my fans say:
Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!
Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.
Lori S: This is the best split pea soup I ever made! It disappeared faster than any other soup I have made. It is so easy to prepare the night before an throw together before I leave for work, I will definitely use it often!
Sunetra C: Das sieht aber lecker aus.
