The bratwurst is a favorite meat in Germany and the Amana Colonies. It is a type of sausage made from either veal or pork, or beef, or a combination. Some are mixed with herbs and spices. The name comes from the German Brät which is connected with the meat that makes up the sausage. So, the word "Bratwurst" refers to a type of sausage which is made from pork encased in a natural casing. It is grilled or fried in a pan, then eaten on a hard roll with German mustard as a sandwich or can be eaten as an entree with kraut and potatoes. Some add sauerkraut to the sandwich. In Germany it is ordered "grab" or " fein". Other popular German wursts from the hundreds of shops and types are Weisswurst, Currywurst, and Mettwurst.
