NOBODY wants to see how the sausage gets made.

But despite that, Australia remains a sausage-loving nation, with the country frying democracy snags every election and the average Aussie eating 44 sausages a year.

World Bratwurst Day is celebrated on August 16, honouring the iconic German sausage which has been around since the 14th century.

Perth offers up a great variety of Bratwursts, from the simply grilled on a bun or dressed up with sides and red wine jus.

Swap up the usual hotdog with these classic German sausages for World Bratwurst Day.

Burgermeister, Nedlands

Don’t let the name fool you because Burgermeister dishes up a mean German meal.

Their Deutchlander Bratwurst is served with caramelised onions, sauerkraut and German mustard.

Olly’s Bratwurst Hut, Malaga

Olly’s Bratwurst Hut has been a favourite at the Malaga Markets, having been around for eight years.

If the “hut” isn’t in the markets next to Hop’s Bar, it’ll be located near the entrance.

Run Amuk Hotdogs, Fremantle

Creative flavour combinations and quirky names, Run Amuk is one of the best in the business for snags.

They offer premium bratwursts and cheese kranski with loaded toppings.

Their special item this weekend is the Elvis: premium bratwurst, bacon, banana, peanut butter with creme fraiche and maple syrup.

The Bratwurst Bar, Fremantle

Located in the Fremantle Markets from Friday to Sunday, the Bratwurst Bar serves authentic pork and veal bratwursts, currywurst and garlic bratwurst.

All sausages are served in freshly baked bread rolls with sauerkraut and onions.
