Brats - Pan Frying to a Twinge of Browned

Updated on January 1, 2020

Normally I cook my brats in a pan of boiling water until they plump, then I start up my electric grill and cook them until they have brown stripes on their sides.

Not so the case tonight. It's snowy outside and the grill is in the garage and it's kind of cold out there. So, I will place them in a frying pan with a small amount of water and steam them at first, then .. cook the water out and brown the sides

Fooling my tummy, so to speak.

It will work!

Buns or Bread

I had a loaf of sliced potato bread. I squirted a liberal amount of French's Yellow Mustard on the center of my slice and plopped a cheesy brat on it. I folded it over and took a bite. Then, another bite, and, well ..it wasn't long and I was repeating the process on another. Those cheesy brats are my favorite flavor. In our area, you can get brats with many different fillings. Sauerkraut. Gummy bears. Cheese. Onion, to name some that I can recall. Oh, and Reuben.

      Louise Powles, thank you for your comment. If you go to the grocery store, they are called Brats. Pronounced br-ah-t. I think it is a shortened word. Bratwurst sausage. They get pretty creative with the additions, some have onion, gummy bears, jalapeno, sauerkraut, sauerkraut cheese and corned beef, to name a few. My favorite is the cheddar infused.
