10 Sausages You Have to Eat in Germany

In my younger, less adventurous eating days, I was waiting for my typical order of General Tso’s Chicken at my favorite Chinese carryout joint. While I was waiting, the restaurant owner started to lecture me. “Why do you only try the same thing over and over again? Why don’t you try something else?”

My answer was simple. I had no idea what 90% of the menu was. Names like Moo Goo Gai Pan, Kou-Bo, Moo shu, Ma Po, and TianFu meant nothing to me without a description; and his menu, like so many other carryout menus, didn’t offer any descriptions. Thus, I stuck with what I knew – General Tso’s Chicken.

    Bratwurst

    Let’s start with the most famous of all German wieners – the previously mentioned bratwurst.

    Currywurst

    It sounds so scary and exotic, but it isn’t. Currywurst is essentially the same as bratwurst, except it’s sliced, lathered in a curry-ketchup, and served with French fries. Many restaurants will list currywurst as an appetizer, but I often order it for my main course.

    Nürnberger

    Here’s a form of German tubed meat that is rapidly making its way to our shores and popping up on German menus everywhere. Traditionally, Nürnberger is a breakfast sausage, but traditions are changing. These thinner versions of the bratwurst are spiced with marjoram and served alongside sauerkraut and potatoes.
