German Farmhouse-Style Bratwurst

1 cup fresh white bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
2 1/2 lb lean veal, preferably shoulder, chilled
2 1/2 lb pork belly or fatty pork butt, chilled
1 Tbsp plus 2 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground white pepper
1 1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
8 yards prepared casings, about 4 oz
2 tbsp melted salted butter

In a small bowl, soak the bread crumbs in the milk. Grind the veal
and pork belly together, first coarsely and then finely. Place the
meat in a large bowl. Add the salt, nutmeg, white pepper and
softened bread crumbs. Mix well with your hands until thoroughly
blended. Working with about one-quarter of sausage filling at a
time (cover the rest and refrigerate the remainder). Stuff the
casings loosely with the sausage filling. Pinch and twist into 4
inch links. Refrigerate the first ones while doing the rest.

To cook, prick the sausages all over to prevent the skins from
bursting. Place as many sausages in a skillet as will fit in a
single layer without crowding. Pour in about one-half inch of
water, cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. Pour off
any liquid. Add butter to the pan and cook uncovered, turning,
until the sausages are evenly browned, about 10 minutes. (This
sausage not suitable for frying as patties.)
