Here is a great grilling recipe for your next tailgate or outdoor party! I put a healthy twist on the original brat and kraut recipe, you won't miss the calories and fat!
I used a grass fed turkey bratwurst from sponsored product Applegate Natural Organic Meats. ♥
By that we mean making good meat - the kind that’s raised humanely without antibiotics and hormones - accessible to as many people as possible. To achieve this evolution, they put their resources toward the people they think have the most potential to change their food system – eaters, farmers and innovators. Their work involves educating people about the important issues that impact their food, addressing the challenges faced by new farmers, and supporting big ideas that can improve the way good meat is raised, produced and distributed.
Makes 12 servings.
6 turkey bacon strips, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 medium apple, peeled and thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
3 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar
12 uncooked turkey bratwurst links ( I used Applegate Organic Brand )
1 bottle (12 ounces) light beer
12 wheat or regular hoagie buns, split
condiments- Ketchup, yellow mustard, relish
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
Cook and stir onion in bacon drippings until softened. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 15-20 minutes or until deep golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add apple and garlic; cook 2 minutes longer. Stir in sauerkraut, mustard, brown sugar and cooked bacon.
Transfer to a 13x9-in. disposable foil pan. Arrange bratwurst over top. Pour beer over bratwurst. Place pan on grill rack over medium heat; cook, covered, 30-35 minutes or until sausages are no longer pink. Remove pan from heat.
Remove bratwurst and return to grill. Grill, covered, 2-3 minutes on each side or until browned. Serve on buns with sauerkraut mixture and condiments. Enjoy! ♥
