A Wurstbrot is a slice of bread spread with thin slices of lunch meat or sausage. Additionally, the bread may be buttered to taste. It is a very simple and typical German type of sandwich, generally home-made, eaten cold, and popular as a snack, packed lunch as well as for breakfast or supper. The sausage used for spreading is never a bratwurst.

If the sausage is put on a bread roll, it is called Wurstbrötchen. It is commonly sold at bakeries, at the butcher's shop or snack shops and sometimes garnished with sliced pickles, lettuce, tomato or Tartar sauce.

Very similar ingredients but with a thick slice of a finely minced baked sausage called Leberkäse on a roll is called Leberkäsbrötchen, Leberkäswecken or Leberkässemmel. It is usually served hot and sold at snack shops, at the butcher and often at public fairs. Mustard (condiment) may be added to taste but no butter.
