Cooking suggestions and tips


Bratwurst is traditionally cooked on a grill, over medium heat. All of our gourmet brats are pre-cooked, and only need to be heated through and browned before serving. To do this, grill brats on each side for 3-5 minutes, until they appear crisp and golden brown.

TIP: Be sure not to puncture the skin of your brat, keeping the casing intact locks in all of the flavors and juices!


Turning the heat up too high is a common mistake when cooking bacon. We suggest placing bacon in a cool pan over medium to low heat and cooking it at a slower rate. Make sure you flip bacon often and watch it closely, as it tends to burn quickly. Or we recommend lining a baking sheet with foil and broiling the bacon until it reaches the desired crispiness. 

TIP: To prevent bacon from curling as it cooks, poke each slice several times with a fork


Liverwurst is extremely versatile, but we prefer ours served with sour jams.

TIP: For an original appetizer, serve liverwurst spread on a cracker or toast.


Interested in cooking the perfect sauerkraut? Let us help you out. Drain sauerkraut and place it in a slow cooker with about 1 cup of water. Set the temperature at low to medium heat, and leave your sauerkraut cooking all day.

TIP: Want to liven it up a bit? Try adding original ingredients like bacon, applesauce, white wine, or caraway seeds. Nutmeg or brown sugar can also be added for a bit of sweetness.
