Classic German Food
Saturday, November 7, 2009 | Time: 10:26 AM

Because, apparently, I'm mostly German. Or something. Well that's America for you.
I love German Food. Its so carby and fattening. Its just delicious. Eat German food! With Beer! With Ale! With all your SCA or Amtgard friends!
Eat it, not because its good for you, but because you just cant help yourself.
Anyways this is one of my fav things to eat so I'm sharing this recipe with you. I really like one-pot meals, this one took me about 30 mins to put together from start to eatin' time, for lunch. You could make a lovely dinner out of this, with german potato salad (see below) and some fresh bread and butter and... maybe a salad if you must. :)

Beer Brats and Apple/Kraut
1 pkg beer bratwursts (about 5 sausages)
1/2 onion, chopped
2 apples, diced
1 to 1 1/2 cups sour kraut
2 cups chicken stock (or water+bullion or Beer)
1 tbsp brown sugar
Pepper to taste (you probably dont need to add salt if you're using stock)

Brown sausages in your handy dandy iron skillet (or regular skillet), on both sides. Pour stock over the top and reduce heat to medium-low. Add apples, onion, kraut, sugar and spices. Cover and simmer for 30 mins or so till sausages are done.

Hot German Potato Salad
3-4 potatoes, sliced into disks
4 slices bacon
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp of parsley (also good with dill and oregano)
salt and pepper to taste

Boil potatoes in water till soft (or microwave). Cook bacon and crumble. In a bowl combine potatoes, bacon, vinegar, water and spices. Let sit, covered for at least 10 minutes to let the flavors meld nicely.

Note: You can make the potato salad the night before (its good cold, too) and throw all the sausage stuff in the crock pot in the morning. The sausages will practically melt in your mouth at the end of the day.

((Serves about 4 people))
