AoM Month of Sandwiches Day #3: Bratwurst Sandwich


Welcome to Day #3 of the AoM sandwich project. Last month we asked readers for their best sandwich recommendations. Out of 483 submissions, we picked 20 to highlight here on the site each weekday during the month of April. At the end, we’ll publish all the entries into an epic man-sandwich cookbook. Enjoy.

Today’s Sandwich: The Bratwurst Sandwich by Dylan Huff

Any sandwich that features bratwurst as the main ingredient will definitely pique my interest. Dylan’s German Delight seemed to have the potential to be both simple and delicious. Let’s see if it delivered.

The Ingredients


  • Pumpernickel bread
  • Bratwurst sausage
  • German mustard
  • Sauerkraut

Step 1: Slice the Brats


Slice the sausage in half length-wise.

Step 2: Fry the Brats


Fry the sausage on both sides.

Step 3: Spread German Mustard


Add your German mustard to one slice of pumpernickel.

Step 4: Stack the Brats


Stack your fried sausage on your bread.

Step 5: Pile on the Sauerkraut


Pile on the sauerkraut.

Step 6: Top With Bread


That looks amazing.

Step 7: Eat!


Taster’s Thoughts

Oh, man. This is an amazing sandwich. It’s like eating an Oktoberfest platter from the palm of your hand. I was admittedly a bit dubious about the fried bratwursts; I’ve only eaten them grilled. But they were awesome! I could have used some bigger slices of bread; all the fillings kept falling out. Will definitely be adding this sandwich to my regular lineup. Thanks Dylan!
