Angry Inverted Bratwursts

does anyone know a way to prevent my Bratwurst sausages from splitting along the length and then flipping themselves inside-out?

they end up like a close up of an over cooked Rice grain )( kinda shape.

they do it in the Oven on the rack and in a pan also.

oddly the Mini versions don`t do this nor do English sausages.


anyone?

Maybe you're cooking them too long.

Could it be a characteristic of that brand of brats?

I boil (simmer) mine in beer first, with a little onion in it.
They cook al the way thru, no splitting,
Then they are just on the grill to get brown and crisp for a short time. Still no splitting because it's a short time.
MMM I may have to go grill in the 5 degree weather today.

Try pricking them with a fork before cooking, to release steam as they cook. HTH.

Bob, I have no idea, I`v tried several different way (other than boiling) with these all with the same result.

Andy, I`m becoming increasingly of the opinion that this may indeed be the case!

Suzi, I may just try that! I have done the mini ones in beer before and they turn out nice, but if this happen to them again under water, then I fear they will be Entirely inedible!

GG, Good idea, although I was taught never to do this...

I think Logically what I should do is put 2 of them in the water with onions, 2 cooked as always and 2 cooked with fork holes in.

at least That way we shall have Something to eat should 1 or 2 of the experiments fail.

I usually boil them in plain water first sometimes even a day ahead then pop on the grill to a nice golden brown and have never had a problem with them splitting. Also be sure the grill is not too hot either. A nice slow roast on the grill is what is called for even if they are pre-cooked.

Were you told why not to do this?
