“The following recipe will make about 5 pounds of great bratwurst at a fraction of the cost of buying it at the grocery store-give it a try! Try serving bratwurst burgers the next time you grill. Condiments range from the traditional-Kraut and a good German Mustard, to my favorite way which is mayo, German mustard, ketchup, thick slices of tomato and leaf lettuce on a crusty, grilled bun. Delish! Cooking time is the amount of time mixture sits in the fridge.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the pork and beef into 2 inch cubes.
  2. Grind through a 1/4 inch grinding plate.
  3. If you do not have a meat grinder you can pulse it in your food processor in SMALL batches.
  4. In a small mixing bowl beat eggs and beer together until well blended.
  5. Add dry ingredients.
  6. In a large mixing bow combine the ground meat and wet mixture until well incorporated.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours, up to 24.
  8. The longer the better.
  9. At this point you can either stuff into casings or wrap in 1 pound packages which is what I do, then freeze.
