Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Bratwurst is German sausage made from seasoned ground veal and pork. Bratwurst is sold cooked, smoked or fresh.
  • tip 2
    Increased exposure and handling make ground meat susceptible to harmful bacteria. To minimize your risk of illness, thoroughly cook bratwurst, sausage and hamburger.
  • tip 3
    To broil bratwurst, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 8 to 12 minutes or until browned, turning once.
