All hail The Schnitzelbank! In this Super Bowl season's least controversial competition (that band contest sure left a few upset musicians — and musicians' advocates — in its wake), the bratwurst at Jasper, Ind.'s Schnitzelbank Restaurant took top honors in the Super 46 Sandwiches competition, a bracket-style tournament pitting 46 Indiana sandwiches head to head.

The bratwurst bested the Rock Cola 50s Cafe's Mile High Club in the finals. Schnitzelbank owner Allen Hanselman reports that bratwurst demand was high this month; the restaurant went through 100 pounds of bratwurst per week (about 500 to 600 links), as opposed to the usual January allocation of 30 pounds per week. The bratwursts are served with sauerkraut and red slaw atop rye bread or a soft pretzel.
