I come from a town with a big German heritage, where we have a huge celebration each year for Oktoberfest. This recipe packs in all the traditional German flavors my whole family loves. —Deborah Pennington, Decatur, Alabama

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash paprika
  • 4 fully cooked bratwurst links (about 12 ounces)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and drained, warmed

Directions

For sauce, mix first five ingredients. Cut each bratwurst into thirds; thread onto four metal or soaked wooden skewers.
Grill brats, covered, over medium heat until golden brown and heated through, 7-10 minutes, turning occasionally. Serve with sauerkraut and sauce. Yield: 4 servings.


Test Kitchen Tips
  • Stone-ground mustard has more heat and a deeper flavor than yellow mustard. Other mustards can be substituted.
  • Starting this recipe with cooked brats makes it speedy and convenient. If you decide to start with uncooked brats, grill them until fully cooked first, then cut into thirds and proceed with the recipe.

    "Love this simple and delicious recipe. The only change I made was pan frying the brats. I had mine plain but my guys had theirs on a hoagie roll and each ate two! (Clearly, I doubled the recipe)"

    "This wonderful recipe was enjoyed thoroughly! The mustard sauce is delicious. I did use whole grain mustard and added just a bit more to the mix. Last night we had the mustard sauce with our ham dinner!! It's definitely a keeper. Good job, Deb!"

    "Yay, I get to put in the first well earned 5 stars. This is not only super quick and easy its down right tasty. The sauce really tames the tartness of the kraut by adding it own special taste. Not the least bit heavy. Just enough onion to detect its place as well. Mashed potatoes were a perfect choice for a side dish Be sure to make extra sauce for them as well. I used Italian Sausage as I don't care for Brats.
