For some reason, brats and sauerkraut is Ross’s most-requested meal. Not that I’m complaining…I like it when I don’t have to plan dinner since I almost always get the “Whatever you want to make!” response when I ask. More than anything, though, I like it because it’s easy. It’s comfort food that can be dressed up or down with whatever you’ve got on hand.
If you haven’t noticed, though, I’ve been hella busy with school this summer and Ross is all over the place, too. More than I’d like to admit, we’re not even home for dinner at the same time, so the crock pot has been a godsend. Ross was really skeptical of brats in the crockpot…and to be honest, I was, too since I was afraid they’d just disintegrate. Nope! We got juicy bratwursts that actually seasoned the ‘kraut as they cooked. Feel free to add whatever you’d like but it was so nice to have just a few ingredients to toss in together before I ran out the door. This one’s a keeper!
- 1 lb Bratwursts
- 2-4 c Sauerkraut
- 1 t Black Pepper
- Toss everything into the crock pot.
- Cook on LOW for 6-8 hrs.
- Serve with coarse mustard.
