Kitchen Tip:

with your favorite bratwurst or Italian sausage.
Here's how...

How to remove casing from bratwurst or sausage links:

  • Using a sharp knife, slice bratwurst or links down the center
  • Using a spoon or the back of your knife, scrap meat from casing.
  • Use sausage in place of ground sausage, ground pork or ground meat.
  • Discard casing.
