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

    I have not made this particular recipe. I googled to find a recipe for these. I also am from Bucyrus lol.

    We don't especially care for pita bread, so I used warm flatbread, spread with sauce, topped with brat mixture and folded in half, taco-style. I also used spicy brown mustard instead of stone-ground, as that's what I had on hand. My hard-to-please husband gave it two thumbs up, saying, "It's a keeper!"

    OOOOH, these were soooo good. I cut the recipe in half to make just two sandwiches, just for me (yum). The sauerkraut that I buy comes in a glass jar, so it is easy to refrigerate and keep for another time. I did not have, and don't particularly like pita, so I used a large hoagie roll, toasted, and that was perfect. I really like the addition of the sour cream and the mustard. You are in for a treat, and so easy to make. This wurst is the best (groan, couldn't resist!)
