    Default New Use For Trader Joe's Bavarian Bratwurst

    I've been trying to think of something to do with
    these wonderful little sausages that doesn't involve
    frying. I found it! They are great cut up into slices
    and used in soup! My first soup was barley/Chinese
    cabbage/sausage slices in chicken broth. Today's soup
    was the same, substituting brocolli for the cabbage.
    (I also put in a habanero or two, but you probably
    won't like that.)

    An odd thing was that despite being pork sausages,
    they yield up no fat. I expected fat droplets around
    the edge of the bowl, but there were none. Even when
    I make the same soup using turbot, I get fat droplets.

    Now I'm freed of having to fry them! They have become
    a health food! Less fat than fish, in a healthful soup.
    I have enough potatoes and onions to fry up another
    couple batches, but it will be discretionary this time,
    rather than mandatory.

    How on earth does frying them make them non-health food, but
    putting them in soup somehow makes them healthy?

    Post the ingredi... Nah. forget it. You're trying to sucker
    somebody into another one of your thorson-science-massaged
    nitrosamine flame wars, aren't you.

    Next!

    When they're fried along with potatoes,
    I add a lot of olive oil. I don't any fat
    when using them in soup.

    I checked. These sausages do not have
    nitrate or nitrite curing salts. If they
    did, I wouldn't have bought them. I always
    check when buying meat.

    Sausages go well in soups, and stir-frys. ;-)

    Predictably certain females derive pleasure from slicing sausage. ;-)

    Braised in kraut, served on a crusty roll, with brewskis.

    Sausage with kraut is one of my favorite ways to prepare it. Good with
    cabbage or 'choy too.
