  • Oven (optional)


  • 8 Nos. Bratwurst Sausages (2 Pounds)
  • 4 Cups Sauerkraut 1 full can well-drained
  • 2 Nos. Chopped Onions (or ¼ Cup chopped onions )
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • Olive Oil as needed
  • Butter as needed
  • Spices/herbs:Paprika, Caraway Seeds, Dill, Salt, Pepper (Again, use it as per your preferences!)
  • 3 Cups Chicken stock
  • 8 Nos. Buns for 8 sausages, or an entire baguette
  • 2 Nos. Apples Finely chopped without skin (Optional)
  • Cheese For taste (optional)


  • Start by heating the oil on high-heat. Add the Bratwurst sausages in batches as per the size of your utility. Reduce the flame to medium and cook until they brown.
  • Add the chopped onion, sauerkraut, and garlic cloves. For people using apples too, here’s your cue. Caramelize them to the T!
  • Then add all your spices and herbs. Throw in your paprika, pepper, and caraway seeds. Stir for 1-2 minutes.
  • Subsequently, add the chicken stock to your mix. You could let it cook from 45 minutes-6 hours depending on the type of flame you’re using. Low flame for a longer cook and high flame for a shorter one. Just remember not to overcook your meat!
  • After your liquid for the mix has evaporated, take the dish out of your utility. On another pan, lightly butter your buns and grill them. This is optional if you don’t want to add too many calories!
  • Once your buns and mixture is prepared separately, place the brat in your bread! Top it off with some dill! Serve hot!
