This method for how to cook sausage is such an easy way and works for many German sausage recipes. In Germany, there are over 1,500 types of sausages. That's hard to imagine, but it's true! Many sausage stores, aka Wurstladen, sell around 50 varieties each, making Germany the sausage capital of the world.
This Bratwurst recipe shows how to cook sausage when the final stage is the grill. These are fantastic when served with potato salad.
Some of the interesting names are "Bierwurst" (beer sausage), "Blutwurst", (blood sausage), "Fleischwurst" (meat sausage), "Blaue Zipfel" (blue tip), "Teewurst" (tea sausage) and "Speckwurst" (bacon sausage).
Sausage can be purchased raw, smoked, canned, frozen, or cooked. They can be thin, fat, long, short, and made from any combination of veal, beef, or pork.
Each often has its own way of preparation, but most can be made the way shown here.
