What to Serve with Brats and Sauerkraut. Finding delicious side dishes to serve with your brats and sauerkraut is a must – whether you're planning a BBQ or celebrating Oktoberfest. These easy sides are the perfect way to complement your sausages. So for a quick "traditional German" bite fry up a German Pork sausage (a German Brat, not an Amish or Oktoberfestsausge like Mike brought home ;-), it has to be a raw pork sausage), bake some fries and make this special sauce that turns the German Brat into a Curry Brat..
