Potato Bratwurst Skillet Recipe

Apples are a sweet and surprising addition to tender potatoes and leftover bratwurst in this stovetop supper. "Having grown up in the Midwest, I love a meat-and-potatoes meal," notes Marcia Graves-Wilbur from Indian Harbour Beach, Florida. "If I can make it all in one pot, it's an added bonus."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 3 medium red potatoes, cubed
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 5 fully cooked bratwurst links, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 medium tart apples, peeled and cubed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

"We had leftover bratwurst and I was looking all over for a recipe to make with them. I ended up adding more broth and next time I think I am going to add another apple. Husband said it was amazing."

"I made this last night. My 5-yr old licked the plate. It was good.

Perfect for camping leftovers. I had 4 bratwurst, and six potatoes, three about medium and three small - they weighed 1 pound together. The recipe turned out fine.
I had never tried to melt sugar before and I added the butter before the sugar melted and turned golden brown, the bratwurst mixture on the edges was getting too dry and dark. Next time, I'm going to clear a spot along a side, more directly over the burner instead of in the center. The recipe turned out fine with my tinkering and adjustments."
