    I’m assuming the salt cures the meat . We were brought up to always cook our pork.

      Not in this case. There’s not enough salt to sure the meat, it’s for flavor.

    I have been seriously craving Zwiebelmettwurst and didn’t even think about looking for a recipe.
    I’m so glad that you made this and that you tried it! As long as you know your butcher and farmers (or raise your own pigs), this is such an amazing breakfast or Brotzeit treat!
    I highly recommend mixing the onions with the sausage for most flavor and (as you said) lots of cracked pepper.
    Thank you for sharing this recipe and your experience!

    Hi I’m 86 years old from Québec ..Canada
    when I was a kid and we had fresh pork sausage for a meal, eating one raw while some were cooking was common
    just as good as beef tartar that restaurants serve at a very expensive price
