- This article is about the Dutch sausage, for the similarly named German sausage see Bratwurst
A braadworst or verse worst is a large Dutch sausage composed of pork. Along with rookworst it is the most common sausage served along most varieties of stamppot but is eaten with other dishes as well and can be found throughout the Netherlands and Flanders.
The name braadworst means roast sausage in Dutch, whereas verse worst simply means fresh sausage, which alludes to it being free of preservatives and hence the need to consume it 'fresh' as to prevent spoilage.
In the Dutch language the name braadworst is occasionally used for the German Bratwurst as well, though the sausages involved are very different. Bratwursts are also referred to by their native name or are called Duitse braadworst which means German braadworst.
