My husband was in a one pot cookoff and we cooked sausages just as an added bonus to serve when they came to the booth to taste his cookoff entry. Everyone...and I do mean everyone was falling all over themselves after they tasted the sausage. His changes: no sauerkraut since we were giving away the sausage like an appetizer, he tripled the recipe, used 1/3 less butter, did not poke holes in the sausage, used St. Arnold's brown ale, added a little more onions. He followed the recipe after that. One side note: since it was for a cookoff after he lightly grilled he cut up the sausage into bite size, put in plastic bag and added Virginia BBQ sauce (I know, but this was for a BBQ cookoff in Texas!)and froze for a week. During the cookoff we had a portable grill where we warmed the sausage. We had to chase some people off because they kept coming back and taking handfuls and sending everyone over to get this "OMG" sausage! We are planning on making again...for a german party for 20ish age group and this time we will stick to the recipe with the sauerkrat, brats and NO BBQ sauce.
