I have to say this was a HUGE hit!!!!!
Papa went nuts over this recipe.
8 uncooked bratwurst links. I could not find uncooked brats, so I bought an apple chicken brat that was fully cooked. I can't remember the brand name, but they were yummy.
1 32 oz. sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained.
2 medium apples, peeled and finely chopped. I did not peel the apples.
12 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled. The original recipe called for 3 slices, yeah right.
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 onion finely chopped
2 1/2 teas. ground mustard. If you want to cut back on the mustard I would used 1 teas.
8 brat buns, split, buttered and toasted. I think toasting the buns made a big difference. I mean who doesn't like toasty buns?
1. Place the bratwurst in crock pot. In a large bowl, combine the sauerkraut, apples, bacon, brown sugar, onion and mustard, spoon over bratwurst.
2. Cover and cook on low for 6 - 7 hours or until sausage is no longer pink. Place brats in buns, using a slotted spoon, top with sauerkraut mixture.
I cooked mine on high for 3 hrs. Remember I bought fully cooked brats.
Give this one a try, you will love it!!!!
