Does anyone have a good apple brat recipe they are willing to share? Son-in-law is asking for some and I have no idea where to start.
never heard of apple brats. I dont know how apples will mix/bind with meat. I think they will turn to mush You can find brat recipes in the search bar and I would add some apple flavoring..... just a thought
I would try added dehydrated apples. That would be the way to go. Make a 5lb batch of brats and add a cup of dried apples. Mix and fry test. If it needs more then, well, you know what to do. Do you have a brat recipe? If not then a quick search on this forum will quickly produce plenty of results.
As a matter of fact. I did just that and found the below recipe for Apple brats. They added apple pie filling.
Thanks for the reply's. I had the butts thawed out and ended up just doing plain brats and hot Italian on Sat. morning. I will try all the ideas in this post and report back at a later date. I have enough sausage in the freezer for now, 'bout 11 lb. of each and 15 lb of breakfast.
Dave, morning. I have Len's site bookmarked on another computer, and never even thought about looking there (must have been and oldtimmers moment again. I tried searching this site and the net for 2 days and didn't get a hit so put this on the back burner for the time being. I will get it figured out and let everyone know what I find.
Darwin, that is what I was thinking about just hoping someone had done it before. I was thinking of using around 2 cups of apples to 10 lb of brats (what do ya think?)
I generally cook by sight and make adjustments from there (I was really bad about writing things down when I was a chef) Off the top of my head, I think I would use a 1/3 to 1/2 apple per pound to start with and then adjust after that. I am thinking a spicy sausage with Granny Smith and sharp cheddar sounds great. Let us know how this story unfolds.
