Oktoberfest Sausage on a Hot Dog bun or Hoagie served with Sauerkraut, Ketchup & Mustard. They are offered by Schneiders. These are really good and if you’ve never had one. You really got to to go out and buy some. They’re loaded with flavor.

These naturally smoked sausages have a rich taste and color. And with coarsely ground pork inside natural hog casings, they’re very juicy. Expect a mild, Bavarian spice profile with notes of oregano and black pepper. Best to finish them on a grill or under the broiler, just for a few moments. A bit of char enhances the flavor.

A good Sausage is going to have that SNAP! This is when the casing snaps as you bite into it.

Oktoberfest Sausage Bread

I usually just pick up Hot Dog Buns or Hoagies but these can be served on a whole array of Breads including Pretzel Breads and Croissants.

Serve the Bread as is or Steam it to soften. Alternatively you can butter the inside and toast or Steam and then place the sausage in and place it into the oven at 450 F for 5 minutes.
