Fried German knockwurst sausage is topped with melted cheese, sauerkraut, and a zippy horseradish sauce and then served on a garlic toasted pretzel roll.
In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, ketchup, pickle relish, horseradish, smoked paprika, and black pepper. Chill until ready to serve.
Spread the softened butter on both cut sides of the pretzel rolls and sprinkle with garlic powder.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven until golden and crispy (approximately 7 - 10 minutes, watching carefully). Remove.
Cut the sausages in half lengthwise. Remove the outer casing from the sausage.
In a large skillet, brown the cut sausages on both sides.
Place one slice of muenster cheese on the bottom bun, top with 2 cooked sausage halves, sauerkraut, and another slice of cheese.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven until the cheese is melted.
Add the top bun and serve hot along with the prepared 1000 sauce for spreading, or dipping.
