Wild boar is a rarity for most, and you may be wondering how to prepare it, so we're providing you with food pairing and recipe inspiration.
How you choose to prepare these sausages depends on the type you choose.
But whether you go Italian or Bratwurst, here’s a key tip:
Before grilling or sauteing, trap in the moisture by quickly boiling your sausages. Alternatively, slowly braise your sausages in broth, bouillon, wine, or beer.
How to pair these sausages?
Wild Boar Bratwurst Sausages go well with:
Sauerkraut: The tangy and slightly sour notes of sauerkraut pair wonderfully with the German seasonings in this wild boar sausage. Try it on a sourdough bun.
Caramelized Onions: The sweetness and depth of caramelized onions beautifully balance the bold flavor of Wild Boar Bratwurst Sausages.
Potatoes: Roasted, fried or mashed, potatoes perfectly pair with bratwurst. On a hot day, choose a cold, creamy potato salad. The mustard, egg and vinegar are a cool match for bratwurst.
You also have plenty of options for pairing wild boar sausage with wine. Try riesling or lager with the Bratwursts.
Packed in 1 lb packages (3 sausages per 1 lb). Order in quantities of 3, 4, or 5 pounds.

In this age of commercially raised and mass-produced meat, it’s absolutely rare to have a wild meal.
Unless you’re a hunter or you know one, you might never discover the pleasure of wild boar.
What’s different about wild boar?
So many things.
Let’s start with taste. Texas wild boar (which is what we use in Wild Boar Sausage and Wild Boar Bratwurst) has a nutty, sweet flavor that’s bold enough to stand up to your stronger pairings.
That’s because these animals eat a diverse and wild, foraged diet. (Not the same feed of grain every day.)
Because they’re wild, their meat is also lean, with less fat and calories. It’s a healthy source of protein, rich in vitamins and minerals.
Also critically different: wild boar is sustainable. The hunters that supply us are helping to keep the wild boar population in check, which is a plus for the environment.
If you want something cleaner, more interesting, and more ethical than any pork, there you have it — wild boar.
