The cased sausages, which are especially popular during tailgating season, are grilled or simmered in beer, then served with grainy mustard and other condiments on a hard roll.
Bratwurst is a type of uncured, fresh sausage made typically from pork, and less commonly with beef and veal. It originated in Germany, and remains popular there and in areas of the American Midwest. While no standard recipe exists for brats, as they're affectionately called, the sausages are heavily spiced, and may include the likes of cardamom, celery seeds, caraway, and coriander.
