My first run of Bratwurst was so outstanding I'm planning on a 10 pound batch very soon. I usually make sausage with some heat to them but we are approaching Oktoberfest time so wanted to do a traditional Brat. I actually gave many away before trying one for myself and then decided to have the rest that was left for my own dinner. I've been wanting to make this Haluski recipe ever since seeing it so figured what better night to do it than with Bratwurst. I bought the primo, heavy, hand made looking egg noodles as a splurge. Quite tasty & I believe it could be a meal in itself and probably was on more than one occasion in the past. The texture of the Brats was awesome which surprised me somewhat since I added no binder to the mix. The homemade Brat buns were overkill...delicious, but to much bread so wound up using a knife & fork. The grilled garden peppers and onions put this over the top. Sadly, I am now out of Brats but intend on making more.
