*Sigh*...Heath absolutely loves Bratwurst. Me? Not so much. I don't buy it and I try not to bring it up so Heath won't be reminded that they exist, yet every once in awhile, after sending him to the store to pick up a few things, he comes home with these damn things, and a huge smile plastered to his face. I don't complain though. I think it's payback for every time I serve Shepherds Pie...a meal he can definitely live without (though it's my FAV!).
If he insists on buying Brats, then I always saute some peppers and onions just to try and liven them up a bit. Heath says this is a waste of time since nothing can better the already awesome taste of the meat, but I beg to differ. If you've got a meat-lovin' hubby, then bring home some brats for him to grill up. I'm sure he'll be pleased (though you may not be, so...sorry!).
1 package of Bratwurst (according to hubby, Johnsonville's the best)
1 green pepper; sliced
1 onion; sliced
2 tablespoons of canola or vegetable oil
1 package of potato rolls
Mustard (personal preference)
1. While the grill is warming up, heat oil in a mid-sized pan. Saute peppers and onions on medium heat till soft (about 20 minutes...you'll want to start sauteing just before the brats go on the grill). When they've reached desired softness, remove from heat.
2. Meanwhile, grill brats turning once...about 15-20 minutes. Place on a potato roll, throw some mustard on it (if desired), and top with peppers and onions. Try to enjoy!
