The name is said to be named after the French city of Lyon, but this cannot be clearly proven.
This sausage consists of cured pork, beef, back fat and spices.
Brühwurst: The firm structure of the sausage is obtained by treating the raw meat with ice and subsequent heat treatment by scalding.

The sausage is eaten warmed up in the water bath with potatoes or dark bread or e.g. cut into small pieces as a pan dish or sausage salad.
