Oktoberfest Sausages

Tis the Season! Where would I find the very best version in the city to cook at home?

Anywhere in the Toronto area.

    Brandt Meats in Mississauga is tough to beat. Great selection of hyper-fresh wurst at their factory store.

      Gaucho at the St. Lawrence Market. They have a fine selection of all kinds of sausages. Haven't had one I didn't like. They are in the north market, Saturdays only.

        I've had the White Sausages (the kind you eat with sweet mustard) from Cheese Boutique in the west end before. Yum!

          Thanks for the responses. I found out that Octoberfest sausages are really Bratwurst sausages.

          Does anybody have a place for Bratwurst?

            Really? I thought Octoberfest sausages were weisswurst. <confused>

              I am confused too. I did a bunch of searching online and see that it really depends on who you ask...

              I just want a great german sausage that will suit most tastes!

                  Weisswurst is the sausage traditionally served at "Weisn," though other types can be served as well.

            Well, in case it's worth anything, I'm German, and I highly recommend the bratwurst at White House Meats. Yum!

                My mom always fried them till they were sizzling and brown; make sure you have some German mustard to go with...

                Of course, grilling would be great, too.
