Bavarian Bratwurst Supper

 Bavarian Bratwurst Supper
My family enjoys the flavors of hot German potato salad and bratwurst, especially during the cooler months. This original skillet recipe is truly a one-dish meal, combining meat, potatoes, apple and sauerkraut. For a lower-fat version, try using turkey bratwurst and turkey bacon.
