Bratwurst is a delicious type of sausage. An excellent way of cooking it (this is not a very accurate description) is to pour a small amount of beer in a frying pan, and then fry the bratwurst while the beer soaks in. The alcohol volume is minimal, and the result tastes excellent. Also, of course, it's great to add Barbecue sauce. Bratwurst, in my opinion, is excellent with salad, corn on the cob, potatoes, and sometimes some bread. The meat content in bratwurst is much higher than in any ordinary hot dog, where the meat content is about 5%. It is a high-quality meal, with ground mixed meats and sometimes added spices.
