This is a recipe for homemade brats, it is very good and you can add your own touch, such as a teaspoon of red pepper flakes, finely diced jalapeno, a teaspoon of sage, etc. If you don't have a sausage stuffer you can form them into patties and fry or grill, they are still good. This does have a little beer in it but so far nobody can taste the beer. Red wine can be substituted for the beer and water. I use a Boston cut pork roast because of the fat content, if you use leaner pork you will want to add pork fat. Also, Veal is used traditionally in brats, but I sometimes sub a lean cut of beef, veal is better though.
