Brats with Balsamic Onions and Peppers

I usually make this with sweet Italian sausage links, but either way it’s wonderful — and incredibly messy. The original recipe called for brat buns, but I fix them on some kind of rolls I pick up in Reasor’s bakery section. They’re got a bit of crustiness to them, so they don’t fall apart as badly from the sauce as the regular soft breads do.



4 brats or Italian sausage links, uncooked

1/3 cup water

2 teaspoons oil

2 large red and/or yellow peppers, sliced thinly

2 large sweet red or white onions, sliced thinly

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

hot dog buns, brat buns or crusty loaves

1. Brown sausages on both sides in a large skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and add water. Cover and cook 10-15 minutes (temperature: 160 degrees). Remove from pan and keep warm.

2. In same pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add peppers and onions, and stir until tender. Add brown sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Cook five minutes longer, coating veggies.

3. Serve each sausage on roll; top with veggies.



  1. YUM!
