Meat Hook Bratwurst Sandwich with Indian-Inspired Toppings

The ultimate Oktoberfest delight with a twist
Bratwurst, often shortened to "brat" in American English, is a common type of sausage in the United States, especially in the state of Wisconsin, where the largest ancestry group is German. Originally brought to North America by German immigrants, it is a common sight at summer cookouts, alongside the more famous hot dog. We think this recipe will give you the best tasting version of the brat with an addition of a pretzel bun, and Indian-leaning toppings such as curry mustard, piccalilli relish, and a celery slaw. The warm spices of the bratwurst are echoed and amplified by the zingy toppings, making for a comforting bite perfect for tailgates or Tuesdays. While this recipe is for only one sandwich, the added slaw recipe is enough for many more brats and will last in the fridge for a few more days.
