1 onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, smashed
1 bay leaf
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into pieces
4 links fully cooked bratwurst (about 1 pound)

Sausages With Apples and Onions image

There are lots of kinds of wurst, or sausage: bratwurst, bockwurst, knackwurst, weisswurst (similar to the French boudin blanc). Bratwurst is popular the United States, and there are some new high-quality packaged supermarket brands now available, or look for other types from a butcher shop. But let's face it: Nearly any kind of sausage will taste great paired with caramelized onions and apples fried in butter.

Categories     dinner, weekday, sausages, main course

Time 40m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 large yellow onions, cut in 1/4-inch half-moons (about 4 cups)
Salt and pepper
1 bay leaf
2 cloves
3 allspice berries
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 thyme sprig
4 large tart apples, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices (about 4 cups)
8 bratwurst or other sausages, about 3 to 4 ounces each
Parsley sprigs, for garnish (optional)


  • Put 2 tablespoons butter in a large cast-iron skillet or wide, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, season generously with salt and pepper and stir to coat with butter. Add bay leaf, cloves, allspice, caraway and thyme. Cook, stirring frequently, until soft and nicely browned, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat as necessary to keep onions from browning too quickly.
  • Remove onions from pan and arrange on a platter. Put 2 more tablespoons butter in pan, and add apples. Raise heat to medium-high and brown apples on both sides, using a spatula to turn them, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove apples and arrange them on top of onions. Keep platter warm in a low oven.
  • Keep stovetop heat at medium and place sausages in pan in one layer. Prick each sausage in several places with the tip of a sharp paring knife or toothpick.
  • Let sausages brown slowly on one side (check their progress by turning them over with a fork or tongs) for 6 to 8 minutes. Lower the temperature if they're browning too quickly.
  • Turn sausages over, and add 1/2 cup water to the pan. Let water evaporate completely, then continue to let sausages brown slowly for about 5 more minutes. (Cooking sausages at too high a temperature will cause them to burst; err on the cooler side.)
  • To serve, place cooked sausages in the center of the onion-apple mixture on platter. Garnish with parsley, if desired.

1 sweet onion, sliced
2 (12 fluid ounce) cans or bottles beer

Hard Cider-Braised Sausages with Sauerkraut image

Provided by Trisha Yearwood

Categories     main-dish

Time 1h

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 18

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 pounds bratwurst or other fresh German sausage of your choice (about 8 sausages)
2 large onions, sliced
6 cups drained and well-rinsed sauerkraut, store-bought or homemade, recipe follows
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
One 12-ounce bottle hard cider
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley
1 head red cabbage (about 3 pounds)
3 tablespoons pickling salt, plus more as needed
2 Granny Smith apples
One 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled
1 teaspoon allspice berries


  • Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Brown the sausages all over, in batches if necessary, about 5 minutes per batch. Remove to a plate as they brown. Add the onions and cook until softened, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the sauerkraut and toss to combine with the onions. Add the thyme, coriander and allspice and stir to combine. Season with pepper. Pour in the cider and reduce by half. Add the stock and brown sugar and return to a simmer. Tuck the sausages back into the pot and simmer, uncovered, until the kraut is very tender and the sauce is flavorful and slightly reduced, 25 to 30 minutes. Season with salt, if needed.
  • Bring the sauce to a boil, add the butter and swirl to melt and combine. Serve topped with the parsley.
  • Remove any loose leaves from the cabbage head and reserve. Quarter the cabbage and thinly slice, on a mandoline if you have one. (The shreds should be about the thickness of a quarter.) Toss the cabbage in a large bowl with the pickling salt. Work the cabbage through your hands and massage for a minute or two, until the cabbage begins to "sweat" and release some water.
  • Thinly slice, then julienne the green apple, leaving the peel on. (Again, use a mandoline if you have one.) Slice the ginger into coins and press with the side of your knife to bruise them slightly and release their oils. Add the apples, ginger and allspice berries to the cabbage and toss well. Let sit for an hour or two, until the cabbage has released quite a bit of water.
  • Pack the cabbage mixture into a large, wide-mouthed crock and press down very firmly until the liquid the cabbage has released covers it. (Depending on the age of your cabbage, it may release less water; a fresher cabbage will release a lot of water, while a cabbage that has been stored all winter will release less.) If the cabbage is not covered, mix together 1 quart cold water and 4 1/2 teaspoons pickling salt until dissolved and pour over enough to cover the cabbage.
  • Use a couple of the reserved whole cabbage leaves to cover the surface of the cabbage. Cover with a plate (or the weight provided, if you have a fermenting crock) and set something heavy on top to weight it. (You can use cans. Many people like to use a resealable plastic bag filled with the same salted water solution used above because it weights evenly and if it leaks, it doesn't ruin the fermentation process.) Store the crock in a cool, dry place.
  • Check the kraut after 2 days. There should be a few bubbles around the sides. Skim any scum that has risen to the surface. Check the kraut every few days and repeat skimming, if needed. Depending on the temperature of your room, the kraut should be ready after about a week. (Some people ferment for a couple of weeks or more, depending on how funky they want their kraut to be.)
  • Divide the kraut and pack into jars. Store in the refrigerator. Drain and rinse the kraut well (discarding any ginger pieces) before using.

4 bratwurst, about 4 ounces each
4 pretzel hotdog buns, split
Melted butter, for brushing
6 ounces Brie, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons cider vinegar

Turn the buns cut-side up and top with the sliced brie; grill until the brie just begins to melt, about 1 minute.
