Kim and Boris have hosted this breakfast for their close friends and family every year at the Festival.

THE HISTORY OF BAVARIAN BREAKFAST
{WEIßWURST FRÜHSTÜCK}

Legend has it, these fat, juicy sausages were created by a happy accident in 1857. A young butcher named Sepp Moser had crowds eagerly waiting for their breakfast sausages on Fasching Sunday (which is the final Sunday during the last three days of the carnival season in Munich). Only there was a problem… he had run out of the sheep casing he used as his sausage skins. Improvising, he used a thinner pork casing instead and gently simmered the meat in hot water to stop the skin from bursting open in the pan. The meal quickly became a favourite with the customers and the speciality dish is now an important Bavarian tradition. It should be eaten before the noon bells toll because the meat used was perishable and there were no refrigerators in 1857 to store them.

Whether the legend is true or not, there is an etiquette to serving and enjoying this morning delicacy. The sausages are delivered to your table in their own cooking water along with a Brezn {Pretzel} and sweet mustard (which is for the sausages, not the bread). The sausage skin is not for eating and there are a number of ways to remove it: you can peel it back, cut it off with your knife or you can eat it the traditional way and Zuzeln {suck} the meat right out of its skin.

You’ll find this traditional breakfast featured on menus across Bavaria. However you choose to eat yours, this is the best way to begin your Oktoberfest Brisbane experience.

THE HISTORY OF GOTZINGER SMALLGOODS

With over 100 years of smallgoods heritage, Götzinger Smallgoods continues the fine art of using traditional methods and recipes in the family-owned Queensland business.  Since 1908 Götzinger Smallgoods has been crafting beautifully made European sausages, ham, and bacon. Today, Götzinger is Queensland’s largest Australian owned smallgoods manufacturer, focused on creating the next generation of premium quality, delicious products.

Götzinger Smallgoods has been partnering with Oktoberfest Brisbane since 2017, starting with the first Götzinger Garten. But, the relationship stretches back over 10 years when Götzinger first supplied their world famous, premium quality pork knuckle to food vendors to serve, an absolute Festival favourite. Now, Götzinger supplies most of the sausages and other smallgoods sold at the Festival, including Queensland made German Bratwurst, the flavour of Oktoberfest, and Weisswurst, a traditional Bavarian sausage that is pure Munich.

At Oktoberfest Brisbane, it wouldn’t be a traditional Bavarian experience without premium quality, traditional fare. The Festival has been named one of the top 10 Oktoberfest celebrations outside of Germany by National Geographic – so it stands to reason we would only partner with the best, Gotzinger Smallgoods.

While you’re at the Festival, drop into the Götzinger Garten that offers the perfect place for foodies to grab a snack and sample sausages in a Sausage Cone or a Tasting Platter. Be sure to take a photo in the crowd favourite #SAUSAGEROYALTY throne.
