bratwurst making

charles_sills | Dec 27, 2012 01:44 PM

hello all. my lovely sister bought my a wonderful hand cranked, cast iron meat grinder for christmas. complete with a sausage stuffing attachment. so for new years eve i HAVE to make homemade brats.

only one problem, i keep finding way too many recipes. some uses some spices, while others use complete different spices, and then some use ALL the spices.

my question is, what spices do you recommend? should i use egg in it?

had you asked me, before i looked up recipes, what spices i thought were in brats i would have guess salt, white pepper, nutmeg, and allspice. should i just stick with those, or should i use dry mustard/paprika/caraway/the thousand others that i have seen?

thanks so much for the help!!!
