Instead of a Sausage Sizzle with onions and toast, you’ll find whole „sausage stalls“ with all kind of different sorts of sausages in loads of German cities. If you plan to visit Germany, I would highly recommend that you go and try some, even if you’re not a big sausage fan. They are very different to your beef bbq sausages here.
One of the biggest things in Germany and a great hang over cure is the „Currywurst“ and I just found out that it even has a whole museum dedicated to it. Check it out here. It might be worth a visit on your next trip to Berlin. If you go let me know if it was worth it!
If you’re not in a hurry to make a trip to Germany, but feel like having a taste of it, you could try to make your own Currywurst. And you don’t have to be in need for a hang over cure to cook it, it can also be served as a dinner or just to spice up (literally) things up a bit!
- Bratwurst (Goetzinger Bratwurst at Woolworth or Bratwurst from Aldi – would recommend the first one)
- Tomato Ketchup (it’s important that it is Ketchup! not tomato sauce)
- Curry powder
What to do:
- Throw your „Wurst“ on the bbq til it’s crunchy and well cooked
- While it’s sizzling, take 3-4 tablespoons of ketchup and mix half a teaspoon of curry in it (may vary depending how hot you like it) – try this and decide if you need more ketchup or more curry before step three
- Cut the sausage in cubes and mix the sauce through – ready to go!
Chips or just a bun go well with it or potato salad. If you’re not so sure, you could also just serve the sauce on the side.
