Bratwurst and Saurkraut

Another quick family favorite dinner. First off, there was no way to take a good picture of these. It isn't an eye appealing meal but it is super tasty. We all have our own way of eating this meal. I took a picture of the three ways.

This is how my son eats his. He eats it seperatly.
This is how my husband and I eat ours. We like the taste of the mustard on the Brat and it is more filling in a bun.

My oldest daughter likes it like this. Cut up and mixed in
with the saurkraut.
All very different ways but each way is tasty.

I buy the Johnsonville Brats and the saurkraut in a jar. I have tried the canned saurkraut and my personal opinion is that I think it tastes like metal so I go for the stuff in a jar.
First put 1/2 C water in a skillet over medium heat. Let it warm up to Medium before adding the brats. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Take the lid off and cook for another 10 minutes. They could be done at this point but I take it a step farther and dump out the water and fry them for a little while. I then remove the brats and dump the whole jar of saurkraut with the liquid. This gets the taste of the brat onto the saurkraut. I do this for about 5-10 minutes and then it is done. I top it off with a green salad.
The kids love it.

we bake ours over diced potatoes and onions...soooo yummy! I will also sprinkle a little dried rosemary on it, there are never any leftovers with this meal, definitely a favorite in our household as well.
