The bacon for this recipe can be used in the Sauerkraut Mashed Potatoes recipe included in this German meal. And what a tasty use for bacon drippings! The tangy mustard and brown sugar make this quick-and-easy German Bratwurst recipe from the Test Kitchen something special.

Ingredients

  • 4 bacon strips, diced
  • 5 uncooked bratwurst links
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white wine or additional chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery seed

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels (save for another use). Drain, reserving 4 tablespoons drippings. In the drippings, cook bratwurst for 10-15 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove and keep warm. Drain skillet.
  2. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and broth until smooth; set aside. Add the mustard, brown sugar, wine, vinegar and celery seed to skillet; cook and stir over medium heat until mixture is hot and bubbly.
  3. Gradually add cornstarch mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Return bratwurst to the pan; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes longer or until glazed.
