Reviews forPotato Bratwurst Skillet
"While this tasted pretty good, I had a couple issues with the recipe. I'm not sure if what I consider "medium" is actually not medium, but oh my goodness my pan was overflowing (and it was a big pan). I could barely stir everything together. Next time I'll do 2 smaller potatoes, 1 large apple, and maybe 3 or 4 links. Also, the potatoes and apples were cooked thoroughly but the broth hadn't evaporated yet. So I had to either figure out a way to get rid of the broth, or chance overcooking the vegetables. So that was a bit annoying. I used brown sugar instead of regular and think that worked out really well (flavor-wise). I had to do the sugar and butter in a completely separate pan, then pour it into the other pan because there's no way I was going to be able to "push bratwurst mixture to the side". I did think there was too much butter though, I would lower that next time. Overall, a pretty yummy meal with some flaws in the execution. I will be making tweaks next time."
"I had some brats I didn't want to waste and found this via a google search. I really didn't expect to like it as much as I did. I have to admit I had to make a few changes based on what I had in the house. I didn't have potatoes except in the pantry in a can. So I used canned potatoes - I know gross. Anyway, I used 2 cans which was too much. I used 5 brats- just what I had. I also added about a quarter of a small head of cabbage because I love it with pork, and I needed to use it up. I prefer eating Brat with a lot of mustard so I did serve it with mustard. This means I usually had the veggies and fruit in a bite with no meat. I also did use the entire amounts of butter and sugar, maybe because I had too many potatoes. I also failed to have tart apples on hand, so after I diced the apples I used a half of a lime to juice them so they also didn't brown. My husband and I liked it - my 20 year old daughters would not try it."
"Very Good! Used 3 brats and added mushrooms and kale. Used brown sugar. Left the apples unpeeled. Cut the butter and sugar in half. Whole family liked it."
"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 am new to cooking, and wasnt sure about the sweetness, but this was delicious!!! I used a little less sugar and butter but otherwise the recipe didnt need anything! 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."
