Product Talk: Johnsonville Brats


Johnsonville BratsAfter I graduated from college, I lived in Germany for 3 1/2 years, on the adventure of a lifetime.
During those years, I lived, worked and played in that amazing country and assimilated myself into the country and culture as much as I possibly could.

While German food hadn’t been a cuisine that I’d been exposed to prior to my sojourn in Europe, I quickly came to love the hearty, homestyle fare of my host country.
In Germany, you can find an imbiss with bratwurst just as frequently as you can find a fast-food restaurant in the United States.

An imbiss was usually a stand-alone, very small restaurant, a little more than a stand, with a walk-up window that served four or five items, almost always bratwurst mit brochen (bratwurst sausage with a hard, crusty roll), usually pommes frites (french fries) with mayonnaise and generally some derivation of the sausage, like in a curry sausage. The imbiss served the ultimate street food in Germany.

I’d grab a bratwurst and walk along the marketplace while I was doing my daily grocery shopping.
I missed the imbiss and the bratwurst when I moved home to the United States. There’s nothing like an imbiss, but luckily Johnsonville makes a bratwurst just like I had in Germany.

They’re made with pure pork and are begging to be slapped on a grill. They are full of a rich, meaty flavor and come out tender on the inside and crispy on the outside, especially when you grill them. They also pick up a smoky flavor from your grill.

They’re perfect for a summer picnic, party or tailgate.

With all the varieties of Johnsonville brats, you’re sure to find one everyone in the whole family will love.
