Apple Sweet and Sour Brats

Published: May 10, 2013

Prep/Cook Time: 60 minutes

Servings: 7

Ingredients

  • 12 Hatfield Bratwurst Links
  • 1 32-oz jar sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 large apple, cored and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, simmer sauerkraut with applesauce and apple juice for 20 minutes.
  2. In a large deep skillet, heat butter over medium heat; add onions and sauté, stirring frequently, until very soft, about 10 minutes. Add brown sugar, and cook for 5 more minutes. The onions should be caramelized. Add apple pieces and sauté for 5 more minutes until apples are just tender. Add to sauerkraut along with cinnamon, salt and pepper. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  3. Prepare a medium-hot fire in grill. Grill bratwurst directly over fire, turning, until evenly browned, about 5-7 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
  4. Remove bratwurst from grill and serve with sauerkraut.
