these are the culprits top right: LIDL-Dulano - Sausages and Salami

I have tried all the other sausages on that site too, they`re all great, but those brat Do Invert, the others are just fine.

The pictures confirm you shouldn't boil them. The forked ones looked a lot better. When I cook brats (a different brand) I just grill them slowly to cook them through and they end up nicely browned all around. If there is a small crack or two in the casing, I don;t care.

well it would seem that Contrary to what I was taught for cooking sausages, that Pricking these type all over Does seem to be the best method, splitting all over does leave the overall shape more uniform.

Jeekz, I have no idea mate, I`v certainly not Seen any here, Local anyway.

The casing is definately the problem. A good butcher should have some home made brats or try a different brand.

Are you sure you weren't trying to make these?

octopus hot dogs

Looks like you overcooked (over boiled) 'em. I only prick hot dogs if I cook them in the microwave. Also, were they defrosted (previously frozen)? Did you check out the link I posted for Johnsonville? I'd go with another brand.

Amy, I did check out the link but since I`m in the UK....
yes they were frozen once, but defrosted totally.
the only problem with another brand is that Bratwurst isn`t Too readily available where I am, I know of 2 places, but only One does the larger types like these.

I prefer handmade sausages and brats, but never do I turn down any well made fresh sausage.

YT those do appear different from the US style ones, have you tried slow cooking them at a lower temp?

I agree, suziquzie. Looking at the pic, again, a fork standing upright in the brat kinda concerns me. But, going by experience with brats from US. I probably would seek out brats from another source.

here is the outcome, the forked brats:
