Football season is here. In Wisconsin, that means Packer season. Tailgating and game day parties can keep us busy for the next 4-5 months.

Munich WeisswurstWeisswurst is a traditional Bavarian sausage that is very tender and mild. Although not as common as beef bratwurst in the United States, delicious Weisswurst can still be found around Wisconsin if you know where to look.

Typically made from veal and pork, Weisswurst is flavored with a variety of spices, including onion, parsley, lemon, ginger, nutmeg, and cardamom. Traditionally, before modern refrigeration techniques, Weisswurst was eaten in the morning because the sausage was made fresh daily, and would go bad by the afternoon. To this day, if you travel to Germany you will often find it served for breakfast.

If you have never tasted Weisswurst, I encourage you to try this delicious Bavarian specialty!
