A Brief Beginners Guide To Weisswurst
What Is Weisswurst?
Now, we know these white sausages sitting in a steaming bowl on your table might seem strange if you’ve never tried one before. But do not be fooled by what you see – they taste a whole lot better than they appear…really really good, so much you have to be careful not to overdo it!
Weisswurst is made from finely minced veal and pork back bacon then mixed with a seasoning blend of onions, lemon, parsley, nutmeg, cardamom. It’s flavour is pretty mild compared to other German sausages, but the mandatory dollop of sweet mustard makes it the perfect Munich breakfast.
How To Eat Weisswurst
Weisswurst come served in a lidded pot filled with water. To look like a real Bavarian local, you should bite the tip off of the sausage with your teeth and then suck out the meat.
This may seem odd, but this is the most traditional way to eat a weisswurst…we still find it pretty tricky to pull off, so we stick to the cutlery method by just peeling off the skin with a fork and knife.
Also customary is pairing the sausage with sweet mustard, pretzels, and wheat beer. That’s right! There is no shame in drinking beer for breakfast…only shame in eating weisswurst after 12 noon!
