Master butcher invents new Bavarian sausage snack

The butcher was tasked to come up with a new tasty treat by the Löwenbrauerei brewery in Passau, and he’s so delighted by his invention – which is essentially Weisswurst in puff pastry – that he’s had it patented, explaining that the pastry is sprayed with lye to help it form a delicious crusty outer layer when in the oven.
