How to Cook Weisswurst

Weisswurst is a traditional Bavarian sausage that gets its name -- white sausage -- from its pale appearance. Prepared from pork and veal heavily seasoned with parsley, onions, bacon, lemon powder, salt and pepper, weisswurst is sold pre-cooked and needs only to be heated through before eating. Do not eat the outer casing of weisswurst; cut and remove the casing at the table or slice off one end of the sausage and suck out the contents. Consume processed meats like weisswurst in moderation and only occasionally. A high intake of cured meats may increase your risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes, reports the Harvard School of Public Health.
