Every August, our town hosts a Bratwurst Festival. To celebrate the sausage season, we stuff brats and sauerkraut inside pita bread. —Brooke Young, Bucyrus, OH


  • 1 package (19 ounces) uncooked bratwurst links, casings removed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
  • 8 pita pocket halves, warmed


  1. In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook bratwurst, onion and pepper over medium heat until bratwurst is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, 8-10 minutes, breaking up bratwurst into crumbles; drain. Stir in sauerkraut; heat through.
  2. For sauce, in a small bowl, mix sour cream and mustard. Fill pita halves with bratwurst mixture; serve with sauce.
