We went searching for the perfect Bratwurst in 2013, and even had a Brat competition at one of our farmer's markets. The clear winner was a recipe from the Nuremberg area, which dated back to 1313! It was so simple, the spices allowed the pastured pork flavor to shine and worked great with almost anything. The perfect highlight to roasted vegetables in the fall, or the perfect sausage for the grill, the return of the 1313 brat is one that's making our family REALLY happy!

Worried you don't know how to cook? Here's the thing, the quality of your ingredients is sort of like a cheat code for cooking. Your dish is only as good as your weakest ingredient. Grab some fresh produce, a good NMP sausage, and some potatoes, rice or polenta...you got a meal!
