Bratwurst, Sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, and roasted onions.

The bratwurst is often considered as "The German Fast Food Meal".A Bratwurst can be eaten with Sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and roasted onions. The sausage is often eaten with a hot or sweet German mustard, with ketchup or sliced and eaten as Curryworst, sometimes also served on a hard German roll and accompanied by beer. It is a very popular snack in German-speaking countries, where Bratwurst in a roll is sold at various fast food outlets and is often consumed while standing.
