Bratwurst. What does that make you think of? Beer? Can’t have it (unless it’s GF I suppose), move on. Mustard? German potato Salad? Me too! What is German potato salad? It’s a vinegar and mustard based potato salad that’s got some bacon and green onions strewn about. Very tasty stuff. Potatoes are really okey dokey in our book, but if you’re watching your waist line, perhaps try this recipe out.
- 1 lb fresh bratwurst
- f.o.c. (fat of choice), we used bacon fat
- 1 lb turnips, peeled and diced
- 1 t brown mustard seeds (optional)
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 1/4 c apple cider vinegar
- 1/3 c dijon mustard
- s & p
Remove the casing from the sausage by slitting your knife along the back side of the sausage. Unwrap the casing and pull out the meat. Place the meat in a saute pan and brown it up. Remove the sausage from the pan and place in your serving dish. Melt down an obscenely large amount of your fat of choice. Turn the heat down to medium-low and add the mustard seed (if using), onion and turnip. Cook until everybody’s tender. Add the turnip and onion to the sausage. Pour in the apple cider vinegar and mustard (just eye ball it). Mix around, taste and adjust any seasoning. Serve hot.
