How to Make Organic Bratwurst “Burgers”

When I was in Germany recently, I tried the local Nuremburg sausages, which are a skinny little bratwurst that taste so good. Now, I can get “bratwurst” anywhere around here at home, but would I actually eat it? Hell, no! Not unless it was organic! So that means I have to make my own. But […]
