The Bratwurst Sandwich

Serves 4

German Bratwurst








400g packet Götzinger German Bratwurst

1 tablespoon light olive oil

2 large brown onions, sliced

¼ cup grain mustard

½ cup Thousand Island dressing

1 large French bread stick

200g Sauerkraut strained

12 slices Swiss cheese


  1. In a non-stick fry pan, heat oil on low and cook the sliced onions until soft and golden in colour. Remove to a small bowl and fold in the grain mustard.
  2. Heat and brown well the Götzinger German Bratwurst in an oiled pan or on a BBQ grill. Once cool enough to handle, slice the German Bratwurst diagonally into 1cm pieces.
  3. Preheat oven to 180C.
  4. Slice the bread stick length ways, and place open on a non-stick baking tray. Spread the Thousand Island dressing to both sides of the breadstick. Place half of the Swiss cheese slices on the bottom of the bread stick followed by the onion mixture, Götzinger German Bratwurst slices, Sauerkraut and top with the remaining Swiss cheese slices. Place the top half of the bread stick on to complete the sandwich, and bake for 10-15 mins until the cheese has melted and the bread is crunchy on top.
  5. Cut into 4 and serve.
