So yesterday before work I grabbed the crockpot and just kinda threw something together- and you know what it was really good!
Apple and Onion Bratwurst.
1 pacakge Johnsonville Brats - the raw ones (mine were frozen)
2 onions sliced thin
4 small apples sliced thin
2 T dried cranberries
1 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 bottles of beer
1/2 cup apple juice.
combine everything in the crockpot. Cook on low all day (mine was about 9 hours).
The sausages come out Very tender and sweet - not drippy greasy like you'd get on a grill. so just be prepared for that.
I served with some frozen peas and spetzle. The spetzle was a nice side with it and the onions. Mashed potatoes would have been great as well.
