A German artisan-style sausage that is available as a short plump light colored sausage or a longer, half round darker colored version. Mildly flavored, the Bauerwurst sausage contains both beef and pork with seasonings such as mustard seed, pepper, marjoram, paprika, mace, caraway, and garlic. This sausage is considered to be a raw sausage (Rohwurst), often being dry cured or smoked prior to being sold. When made as a plump short sausage, Bauerwurst may be served in a bun garnished with sauerkraut or when made as the longer stuffed sausage it is served as an appetizer or sliced for use in a main dish with other ingredients such as potatoes, vegetables and sauerkraut. Bauerwurst Sausage may also be referred to as Bauernwurst.
