This article is about the Dutch sausage, for the similarly named German sausage see Bratwurst

A braadworst or verse worst is a large Dutch sausage composed of pork. Along with rookworst it is the most common sausage served along most varieties of stamppot but is eaten with other dishes as well and can be found throughout the Netherlands and Flanders.

The name braadworst means roast sausage in Dutch, whereas verse worst simply means fresh sausage, which alludes to it being free of preservatives and hence the need to consume it 'fresh' as to prevent spoilage.

Typically the sausage is pan fried with a large complement of butter, though during the summertime it is not uncommon to see the sausage on a barbecue.

In the Dutch language the name braadworst is occasionally used for the German Bratwurst as well, though the sausages involved are very different. Bratwursts are also referred to by their native name or are called Duitse braadworst which means German braadworst.

The Dutch verse worst or braadworst is the direct ancestor of the internationally more known Afrikaner boerewors, to which it still bears great resemblance.
