Turkey Brats with Slaw Recipe
The cooked slaw-and-cranberry topping on these beer-boiled brats can be served either warm or cold. It makes a tasty and colorful change from kraut or conventional condiments. Thanks to Christy Hinrichs of Parkville, Missouri for the recipe!

- 3 teaspoons celery salt, divided
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 2 packages (19-1/2 ounces each) turkey bratwurst links

- 2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute coleslaw mix and onion in oil for 7-9 minutes or until tender. Stir in the cranberries, vinegar, honey and remaining celery salt; heat through. Set aside.
