To get what you like, read the label before purchasing.
Seasonings include salt, black pepper and sweet spices like nutmeg.
BOIL TO DECREASE SODIUM
Bratwurst sausage is famously salty. To decrease the sodium, simmer in boiling water for three minutes… before frying or grilling.
Once the water boils, add the sausage and simmer at least 3 minutes in boiling water.
Watch closely. If allowed to simmer too long, the sausage will lose flavor.
