Ok Ok, I know I should make up some fancy name like Brats in a Bun or something, but nothing I could come up with sounded both "clean" and interesting at the same time


So for this thread, I will tell you how I made entree show in the pic below:



First, you get yerself some tasty Bratwurst. Full sized variety is best as those tiny anemic brats you sometimes find selling for way too much money are just not worth it.

Now, make the pretzel dough as shown here: tastykitchen.com...

When it gets to the point of wanting you to make 2oz rolls, we begin to deviate a bit. If you have 5" brats, then the amount of dough you have should easily cover 10 brats. If you have less than 10, then experiment with portioning it out and don't worry too much about wasting it, since you can use the leftover dough to make pretzel rolls or what not.

I had 10 brats, so I pressed that dough into a log shape and cut 10 equal pieces out of it.

At this point, fire up your skillet and cook those brats on high heat (rotating them occasionally) for about 5 minutes max. You don't want to fully cook the brats yet, just sear the outside a bit. This keeps the juices inside and ensures that the brats will be fully cooked. When done, set the brats aside for a bit to cool off.

While they are cooling off, take your dough pieces and roll them out to rectangle wrappers slightly longer than your brat and about 4 times the diameter. For each dough wrapper, moisten the outside edges with a bit of water using your fingers or a pastry brush. Now set the brat in the center and roll it up. This takes practice. try differant approaches to wrap them into a nice log shape like in the picture. As you wrap each one, place it on a lightly floured counter or cookie sheet to wait.

When you have all your brats wrapped, you are ready to poach them. First, preheat your oven to 425 then start a big ol bucket of water boiling. When it is boiling, add 3 Tbs Baking Soda per 2 qts water. Now CAREFULLY place your brats into the boiling water for about a minute each. Don't overload the pot or you'll have water spilling out making a huge mess, a lot of noise, and getting people all kinds of upset at you.

As you take the brats out, set them on a lightly oiled cookie sheet. Once they are all done, baste them lightly with a beaten egg to show them what for. Make sure you slather that egg all over the outside where you can reach with a basting brush. Then place them in the oven for about 25 minutes. If after 25 minutes, they are not lightly browned, cook them a few minutes longer, checking on them occasionally till they look something like the pic.

Finally take them out and enjoy them with some sauerkraut and julianned potatoes and some beer. Or just eat them alone, either way. It's your food, eat it like you want.


Hope you can figure all this out and enjoy.. It was yummy for me and no I have no leftovers to share.

Not quite as culinary, but lately, there is this Pillsbury commercial where they show crescent cheese dogs, and damn if they don't look good.

Basically, get the crescent rolls, put a piece of cheddar around the hot dog, then wrap it up in the crescent roll, and bake.

I might have to try that, sounds yummy (but not all that healthy)....

Oh that looks absolutely killer with the fried potatoes and kraut. A big ice cold mug of beer and some Koop's Dusseldorf mustard and I'm there.

The only thing I might do differently is cook the brats in beer on a slow simmer, then brown them a bit in a skillet or on the grill prior to wrapping them.

Yum.

Looks awesome! But, it would be GREAT if one could buy some ready-made pretzel dough. Anyone know of that on the market yet?
