How to make it

  • Completely mix ground beef and pork together. If you have a butcher, you might want to have them mix it together for you.
  • Combine all seasoning and add to meat mixture.
  • Hand mix the meat and seasoning until completely mixed together.
  • Divide mixture into two equal parts. Make 6 - 4oz patties from each part.
  • Chill or freeze until needed.
  • Can also be hand rolled into long sausages, similar to links.
  • If you should choose to stuff bratwurst into casings, mix ½-¾ cup water to meat mixture.
  • Stuff casings, being careful not to tear. Tie ends with butcher twine.
  • Allow the meat to chill for at least 8 hours before cooking.
  • The original recipe called for grinding lean beef and pork. If you choose this method, run the meat through the grinder three times.

    Hubby just took a big batch of these with him on his week long fishing trip and the guys loved them. They wanted to know if I was intending them to taste German...Well, exactly! They are as easy as meatloaf!
