Brats and Sauerkraut
Well, as my Facebook friends know, my first photo session with the bratwurst was not so pretty. Without going into too much detail, I thought I would have sauerkraut, melon balls and a full bratwurst. Use your imagination…geez! So, back to the drawing board and I have SLICED sausage and I changed the melon balls to a sliced tomato.
If you are not making your own sausage, be careful with the sausage that you buy. Whole Foods had just made these the other morning so I picked up a couple. Yes, I’m sure the ones I purchased weren’t as “clean” as if I had made them myself; however, this was my best choice in a pinch. Watch out for nitrates, cane syrup, and added ingredients with weird names!
Also, my favorite pre-made sauerkraut is Bubbies ~ it just doesn’t compare to any brand that I’ve ever tried. Unfortunately, everyone else thinks this too as Whole Foods was out of it when I was shopping, so I found an organic brand that was still very good.
On this plate, I sliced a small tomato and added a dollop of whole grain Dijon mustard.
Simple, simple…but so good.
