Everyone in my house loved this recipe! I had leftover bratwurst in the freezer from summer so I decided to give this recipe a shot. I doubled the batch and fed 7 adults including three hungry men. Very filling and flavorful!

It had a very interesting flavor, and nice sauce. I added some green peeper and celery chopped up and fried in a little butter to the mix and it was excellent. The celery especially picked uo on the tangy sauce and complimented it nicely. I also added a little more sugar to taste.
